‘Movember’ is a blend of the words ‘moustache’ and ‘November’, and it refers to the annual charity event for raising awareness about and collecting funds to combat prostate and testicular cancer. Started in Australia in 2003, the campaign came to Cyprus in 2013 and is now recognised around the island. During November, men pledge to grow moustaches to become visible advertisements for the cause. For several years now, the Thanos Hotels group has encouraged its male employees to support the effort. On 28 November, these employees, their colleagues, and guests will gather from 16:00 to 18:00 at Almyra for a Shaving Party. Everyone can check out the newly formed moustaches before a barber offers his shaving and styling services. Almyra will provide food, drinks, and entertainment, so come and join the party! Participants and their friends and family are invited to donate funds to Movember Cyprus and the Movember Foundation, both of which support efforts to combat prostate and testicular cancers and to prevent suicide by those suffering from them. New at this year’s celebration is the Man Van. In it, you will find Movember collectible memorabilia (t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, caps, pins, and bracelets) that you can purchase in support. Movember Cyprus is an initiative co-organised by Round Table 1 Nicosia and Keo beer. The goal of Movember is to stop men from dying too young by promoting early cancer detection and improved treatment. Stop by and lend your support.
