Lincoln ’Mo Bros’ began their mission clean shaven on November 1. After much growing and grooming, fundraisers have raised awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and male mental health.
Throughout the month people in Lincoln have done their bit in support of the campaign. City of Lincoln Council Chief Executive and Town Clerk, Andrew Taylor, opted for ‘reverse Movember’ when he lost his 38-year-old ‘tash.
At the starting line, we spoke with Lincolnshire Consultant Urological Surgeon, Jorge Clavijo, who supports the campaign.
Dr Clavijo got in touch with The Lincolnite and provided an update of this year’s efforts.
“We men are not very proactive in looking after our health. Movember is a useful tool to remind us to do our MOTs, men’s health awareness is on the rise albeit slowly”, he said.
