Men that have taken part in this year’s Movember, the challenge to grow amusing facial hair for the month of November, have been asked to continue their efforts throughout December.
Paragon Data Services are taking the opportunity to extend the efforts of Movember to benefit other charities. They are asking men to keep the razors at bay for a few more weeks until the end of December.

Movember requires men to grow facial hair, usually in a style they would not usually choose, to raise awareness of men’s health conditions, particularly prostate cancer. Many participants ask for sponsorship to donate to The Prostate Cancer Charity and The Institute of Cancer Research.

Iain Bland, managing director at Paragon Data Services, has set a £500 prize fund to be awarded to the man sporting the best moustache, to be donated to a charity of his choice. An additional £250 will also be donated to the Smile Foundation, the charity PDS has worked closely with to raise funds.

Participants are asked to send in photos of their facial achievements to be displayed on the PDS website and Facebook page.

PDS is encouraging men taking part to keep their facial hair in the style of Movember, which says they should ‘groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery.’

Iain Bland said, “Movember has seen such huge success rates and a massive involvement from men everywhere. If we can continue that success to benefit even more charities and people then we should. Everyone has fun as a result of taking part in Movember, but there is a serious message behind it and this is one we aim to continue.”
