In 2014 we held a hugely exciting, town-wide event for the Movember campaign, and so many people contributed to make Mo'ket Harborough a success and helped support the fantastic and important Movember cause.
We had a little break in 2015, but this year we're back! The Mo’ket Harborough Committee are busy planning and organising a Movember that will hopefully be bigger, better and with more of a focus on the local community.
The idea behind Mo'ket Harborough is to be better together, and to make a positive change socially. Therefore we'd really love you to get involved, especially by joining in on Facebook and Twitter. 'Like' or 'follow' us, join the debate and share your ideas and let us know what you're up to as well as following what's going on in your Mo'Town!
Hopefully all the information you'll need is on this site, but if you do need any other help, advice, support or assistance then we are only an email away!
We hugely encourage as much social interaction as possible, so please tell us your stories, promote your events, help and encourage the rest of the Mo'ket Harborough family and please share, share, share your mo' growing photos!
We plan on making Mo'ket Harborough a little different this year. Movember do wonderful things to raise money and awareness for men's health and we will continue to support the charity with our moustache growing efforts and the subsequent money raised through their website. However using the funds raised through Mo'ket Harborough events during Movember, we are looking to support two local charities that have associations with men's health. The money raised during local events will this year be split equally between VASL and Ian's Chain. Click here for more information.
Mo'ket Harborough was a daft idea with good intentions. It's since been proved it was a great idea that makes a real difference.
In 2014 we created a hugely exciting, town-wide event for the Movember campaign. We helped raise the profile of Movember and its drive to promote men's health, whilst also putting Market Harborough on the map for being the first town in the UK, the first town in Europe, the first town in the Northern Hemisphere and only the second in the World to change its name for November!
In 2016 we are doing it all again, but this time hopefully bigger, better and with a greater community focus. We'd love for you to join us on the journey!
During the month of November, men across the world grow moustaches to raise awareness and funds for men's health - in particular, prostate and testicular cancer. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in UK men and so many Harborough residents will be affected by it – you may well know someone yourself.
However, it’s not just that Movember is a fantastically important cause, it’s also something that everyone can get involved in…Mo Bros, Mo Sistas…everyone…and so that’s why we're hoping as many of you as possible will get involved with 'Mo'ket Harborough'.
There will be many ways to get involved either as an individual, a team or a local business, organisation or group. The most important message for Movember is to take part and grow that mo'!
We hope the whole town will embrace Mo'ket Harborough again for the month of November and make Movember 2016 a fantastic community focussed event.
We will keep you updated on all the wonderful things happening leading up to and during November right here and on social media.
