This month, some of the gents in our British Corner Shop team are fundraising for Movember – supporting the cause by growing (or attempting to, in some cases) a very healthy-looking moustache.

We’re thrilled that we’ve had such an up-take this year, with some strong efforts of facial hair now starting to appear around the office – if you don’t believe us, keep scrolling.

With only a couple more weeks left until the end of the fundraising, we’ve sat down with the instigator of this charitable challenge to learn a little bit more about why this cause is one to get behind.

Q1: Hello! Please introduce yourself and your role at British Corner Shop?

Hello! My name is Craig Penfold and I’m the Business Development Executive for the bulk and wholesale department at British Corner Shop.

Q2: For those that don’t know, please can you tell us what Movember is all about?

Sure! So, Movember originally started as a charity that focused on fundraising for and raising awareness of prostate cancer – however, over the years it has grown to tackle a range of other important male-related issues including; prostate and testicular cancer, men’s mental health and suicide. It’s a fantastic charity and is committed to getting men talking about the potential issues they could face.

Q3: What made you want to partake in Movember this year?

I’ve participated in Movember a few times before – in 2010, 2012, 2013, 2017 and now 2019. I’ve always done it to support my grandfather who has battled with prostate cancer for a very long time. He defines what a fighter is to me.

Q4: Aside from growing a fabulous moustache, what else are you doing to raise money for the cause?

I’m glad that my moustache is getting recognition! So, this year I’ve also signed up to do the ‘move goal’ of Movember, which is to complete 60km of movement over the month of November. As my wife and I are keen runners, I’ve decided to commit to accomplishing running the distance – so far, I’ve completed 22km.

As a business, we’re proud to be supporting Movember this year and hope that you will join us in helping reach our fundraising target of £1000. To donate or find out more, please visit our Movember Team Page:
