Along with thousands of other men, I am growing a moustache this month as part of the Movember charity’s aim of raising funds and awareness of prostate cancer, testicular cancer and other cancers that affect men.

The reason we grow moustaches (I’ve started mine as part of a goatee, as you can see from the photo) is to prompt conversations around the often ignored issue of men’s health. To find out more visit the Movember website, by clicking here.

My moustache and I will be celebrating Movember, and raising funds for the charity, on Saturday 26 November at the Boat Club in Nottingham, 8.00-11.30 by playing guitar for The Imposters in a triple-header evening of three bands (the others are Andy McPhee and Terminal Five). If you’re in or around Nottingham on that night I’d love to see you there!
