Sir Gerald is growing his Mo for ‘Movember’ in order to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK. The charity raises awareness about Prostate Cancer, as well as seeking to improve care for those suffering with the dreadful illness.
Every year in the UK, prostate cancer kills 10,000 men, it is the second biggest killer after lung cancer. It is estimated it will become the most common cancer by 2030 and with an ageing population, this means more men are likely to face other prostate diseases.
Sir Gerald said “I am growing my moustache for ‘Movember’ to raise awareness for Prostate Cancer UK. I fully commend the excellent work they do to raise awareness of about this type of cancer and to improve the health and well being of men.”
