THIS November The Cheadle Academy is supporting Movember.
The Cheadle Academy’s Art Department has launched ‘Movember craft club’ which takes place every Tuesday and Thursday lunch time throughout November.
All students and staff – Mo Bros and Mo Sistas – are helping to create quirky moustache brooches, cards, bookmarks and other accessories to be sold in school and in the wider community with all profits going to Movember! During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world.
With their ‘Mos’ 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 men’s health.
Movember challenges men to grow a moustache for the 30- days of November, thereby changing their appearance and the face of men’s health. For the entire month, these selfless and generous men known as Mo Bros, effectively become walking, talking billboards for 30 days. Through their growing efforts they raise awareness for the issues of men’s health.
Another crucial part of being a Mo Bro is to raise funds for men’s health. Men donate their face, and much like taking part in a run or a walk for charity, ask their family and friends to sponsor their efforts.
Movember’s not just for men.
The women of Movember, are known as Mo Sistas. They play a vital role in the success of Movember by supporting and encouraging the men in their life to get involved.
Mo Sistas also get involved by signing up at Movember.com, and participate by raising funds and awareness themselves.
Essentially, Mo Sistas do everything that Mo Bros do, without a Mo.
Subject Leader for Art and Art Textiles, Lisa Coles, said: “We are really pleased with the commitment shown by our students, for this cause. The Department is packed at lunchtimes with people crafting for Movember.
“Cheadle Academy students always rise to a challenge and I just know they’re going to raise lots of money for this really important cause’.
