We are midway through November 2012 and many around Stevenage Football Club have been getting involved with Movember, to raise money for a worthy cause.
Movember was already common in football, however as this year’s partnered charity is Prostate UK it is even more prominent than ever. Team Boro Tash have been growing their moustaches, and their donation pots since the start of the month with a figure of £650 already reached! We don’t want to stop there though, so donate if you can and let’s do everything we can to help give money to such a worthy cause.
Earlier this week Boro Player spoke to some of those getting involved so sign into your account now for a chance to hear their thoughts and just why they are getting involved, and also see who is getting the most progress! Talk to us on twitter @stevenagefc and @prostateuk, and make sure you include #teamborotash and #movember!
To donate to Team Boro Tash’s page simply go to uk.movember.com and search for ‘Boro Tash’. Thank you in advance to all those who get involved and those who donate, the money goes to a very worthy cause.
