Residents and staff at RMBI Care Co. Home Ecclesholme in Eccles, Manchester, supported Movember this week to raise awareness of men’s health issues. Ladies and gentlemen at the Home donned fake moustaches and cheesy grins to pose for photos. Everyone then enjoyed a moustache themed afternoon tea. Movember, the month formerly known as November, is when brave and selfless men around the world grow a moustache and women step up to support them, all to raise awareness and funds for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and male suicide.
