SCCC and Real Shaving Co. join forces for Movember


Several members of the Somerset County Cricket Squad have teamed up with The Real Shaving Company to take part in Movember.

Movember is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

The Somerset CCC “Mo Bros” who will be growing facial hair for charity are: Lewis Gregory, Jack Leach, Roelof van der Merwe, Paul van Meekeren and Head of Strength & Conditioning Darren Veness.

Talking about the challenge Lewis said: “I think it’s great as a group to be able to support a charity which helps with aspects of men’s health.  It’s a fun but powerful way to raise awareness for various health issues that affect men day in and day out.”

As part of the initiative The Real Shaving Co., our Official NatWest T20 Blast Partner, will be donating £100 on behalf of each of the Somerset Cricket Mo Bros who successfully complete the month.  Plus everyone who donates will be entered in to a draw to win a great prize.  You can even chose to join the team!

Lauren Hagon from The Real Shaving Co. said: “We’re really excited to team up with the Somerset County Cricket Club Mo Bros to create our joint fundraising Mo Team: RSC + SCCC. The Movember Foundation is a brilliant charity which tackles some of the biggest health issues faced by men, something as a men’s grooming brand we are very passionate about. We’re looking forward to receiving ‘tash growth updates from the Somerset lads and hope to raise over £1000 for the charity.”

Funds raised are committed to programmes supporting prostate cancer and testicular cancer initiatives run by the Movember Foundation and through their men’s health partners Prostate Cancer UK and the Institute of Cancer Research.  They will also be funding men’s mental health programmes.
