Thundersley Rovers Sports Club are delighted to be supporting Movember!

During November each year, 'Movember' is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world.

With their 'Moís', men raise vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. As an independent global charity, Movember's vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of menís health.

This year Thundersley Rovers are delighted to confirm that they will be sponsoring each of our players taking part in this valuable fundraiser.

To apply for sponsorship, please send details of your Movember page to info@thundersleyrovers.co.uk. Once received, the Club will make a donation of £10 to each player currently involved*.

For more details about Movember, visit their website.


Men's Health and Movember

On average, men die at a significantly younger age than women Ė the average life expectancy for man in the UK at birth and at age 65 is lower for men than women however there is no biological reason for this.

The reasons for the poor state of menís health in the UK and around the world are numerous and complex. From Movemberís perspective the reasons for the poor state of menís health include:

* lack of awareness and understanding of the health issues men face
* men not openly discussing their health and how theyíre feeling
* reluctance to take action when men donít feel physically or mentally well
* men engaging in risky activities that threaten their health
* stigmas surrounding mental health

Movember aims to change the face of menís health and reverse this way of thinking by putting a fun twist on this serious issue.

Using the moustache as a catalyst, we want to bring about change and give men the opportunity and confidence to learn and talk about their health more openly and take action.

*Scheme available to all Thundersley Rovers SC players only. Any outstanding Club fees must be settled prior to a donation being made.
