Knights Of Old honours Movember #depression #anxiety

The Knights of Old Group are proudly supporting the Movember Foundation UK and their bid to stop men dying too young, one Mo at a time.

With a moustache boldly emblazoned on one of our Nelson Distribution vehicles and a large ‘STOP MEN DYING TOO YOUNG’ message on the rear of one of our Knights of Old trailers, the Knights of Old Group aims to encourage people to support Movember.

The month of Movember, formally known as November, sees Mo Bros across the country grow moustaches to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention. This year we’re changing the face of men’s health by literally changing the face of our vehicle. Nick Bithell, HR Director, believes that, “Movember is vitally important, it raises awareness for men’s health issues in a light-hearted way, and shows men that it’s okay to talk about their health. We hope that our ‘stache themed vehicles will bring more awareness to Movember.”

Several members of the Knights of Old Group will be cultivating the hair on their upper lip, with styles ranging from The Trucker to The After Eight, and The Connoisseur to The Businessman. Management Accountant and 3 year Mo Bro, Josh Horne added, “Men’s health issues are so prevalent in today’s society and not enough of us are talking about it. Growing a Mo is an easy way of breaking down barriers of communication between men. I’m excited that so many members of the company have decided to get involved this year and become Mo Bros, many for the first time. “

Since the first Movember in 2003, over 5 million Mo Bros and Mo Sisters have raised over £443 million for men’s health issues.
