LFE's Alumni Liaison Officer, Simon

LFE Alumni Liaison Officer Simon Williams has become a Mo Bros for the next 30 days as part of the Movember campaign.

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world.

The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

Last year close to £80m pounds was raised and Williams is keen to do his bit for the charity by becoming a walking, talking billboard for the rest of this month.

“I’ve lost family members as a result of cancer, so my motivation is to raise the awareness of Movember in order to support sufferers and affected families of prostate and testicular cancer,” said Williams.

“Wearing a moustache in public will hopefully prompt questions and inspire people to get screened.”

While Williams is just starting his challenge he will be able to at least take inspiration from some of LFE’s Regional Staff who know a thing or two about moustaches from their time in the game.
