Movember 2019

We are proud to support Movember with a Men's Health Stall in The Curve, Prestwich on 27 November 11am - 2pm.

We will have health information available; mental health, prevention of conditions and diseases, healthy eating and exercise etc

  • Offer a mini-physical-health-check
  • An exercise bike competition with prizes to see who can cycle the furthest in 1 minute
  • Smoking cessation and health promotion
  • A moustache quiz

Stuart Edmondson, Head of Integrated Healthcare, who is leading the fundraising tells us why it is such an important cause:

“Too many men do not talk about their physical or mental health problems and choose to ‘man-up’, each year over 47,000 men are diagnosed with Prostate Cancer – that's 129 men every day and every 45 minutes one man dies – that's more than 11,000 men every year.  Men are three times as likely to die by suicide than women –  in 2018, 5,185 men in the UK and Republic of Ireland took their own lives, the highest suicide rate in the UK, and England, is among men aged 45-49.  Attitudes need to change as men are dying too young; we all have a part to play and supporting the Movember Foundation goes some way.”
