It’s the month of the Mo’, with mustaches and beards being grown for a good cause.

Kieran Ryan, Director of Partnerships from Movember joined Kate and Nige this morning, to discuss all things Movember.

First off the bat was where the funds raised by all those sporting a mo’ goes.

” We have four key cause areas; prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention, those funds are raised from all mo bros, mo sisters, and mos across the country”. Kieran says.

The hairiest month has raised funds for 1,250 health programs across those four categories in the past 19 years.

Kieran also shared some key tips and tricks for anyone looking to celebrate, what Nige’s called ” the beauty of the Mo’.

” The first week is the most awkward, but a mascara stick is unbelievable just to give your mustache a bit of extra color before it reaches its full bloom around week 4″.


For anyone looking to get in on the action, there are lots of options.

You can also get involved by coming along to MIX 106’s MOGA fundraising event on November 11.

If that wasn’t enough to convince you, there’s also the simple fact, according to Kieran.

“Moustaches haven’t been proven to make you 10% better looking but I believe they do”.
