Bake saleNovember for some has become synonymous with Movember  and fundraising for and creating awareness around men’s health in regard to prostate and testicular cancer.

On Monday 25th of November the CPIT Staff Wellbeing Committee is holding a bake sale in order to raise funds to support Movember and also that of the Breast Cancer Foundation.  Bring your appetite and your spare change to the Atrium on Monday 12 – 1pm, or Trades VF block and purchase some delicious baking knowing your money is going to worthy causes.

The Library is rich in resources on both these subjects.  For further information you can check out What women (and their men) need to know about prostate cancer or In the pink : a guide to breasts, cancer and living well.

For those who like to test their skills with a  quizz give this Movember ‘literary moustache’ one a go.

Just in – there are two magnificent gingerbread houses available for purchase kindly donated by Mike Meaclem from Food and Hospitality to the Movember cause………. so make sure you come by the Atrium on Monday lunchtime and see what goodies are on offer.

If you are considering growing a moustache, One thousand beards: a cultural history of facial hair  provides excellent tips on planning, selecting and growing beards and moustaches.

Looking for some inpiration? There are a variety of styles to choose from and there are a number of moustached luminaries such as Salavador Dali, Charlie Chaplin, Tom Selleck and Frank Zappa, whose moustaches have become as famous as the person themselves.

To support this worthy cause, check out the Movember website.
