Movember with the Rats and Lions Team

November 13, 2013

November is the time for men to get off their butt and put some hair on their lip to raise funds for research into men’s health. Men and women or Mo Sista’s can join in the fun and become members of the Rats and Lions Movember team to get the message out there for all to see.

The Bingara Lions Club has jumped at the opportunity and are donating all funds raised through their Movember raffle at the RSL and have vowed to grow some healthy bush upon their faces along the way. The Gwydir rugby club have also come on board with several players committing to the project. Some are already looking like their mascot the Rat.

Bingara’s Movember men, Tex Wright, Ray (Stumpy) Allen, Ian Armstrong, Chris Thomas and Ben Roberts.

You don’t need to be a member of Lions or Rugby to join it is open to everyone and you are all encouraged to Have a Go and Grow a Mo.

We have applied for and received a Movember party kit and are planning a fund raising BBQ starting at 3pm on Sunday the 1st of December at The Sportsmans Hotel to celebrate the effort and finalise the funds raised. There will be live entertainment with several local artists bringing their instruments along for a bit of a jam session plus the judging of the Mo’s with prizes for the best and wildest efforts.

To join in the fun or to donate to the Team you can go to Movember 2013 hit on Join a Team type in Rats and Lions in the search box and go from there.

If you wish to donate go in the same way but hit the Donate box and follow the prompts.

There are several fund raisers for women’s health and the men seem to slip through the gap so with the start of Movember it’s an opportunity too good to miss. The main thing is to get in and have a go.
