BOTH Malvern Town and Malvern RFC will this month be taking part in the annual ‘Movember’ campaign, as the club’s hope to further raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer.

The annual event is always a popular one, which usually sees men growing out their moustaches (successful or not!) in return for some cash that can be donated to the cause.

The Movember Foundation has helped to fund 1,250 projects so far and it has made a huge impact across the country.

Malvern Town defender Jay Sauntson is one of the leading figures in getting his club involved in the campaign.

“As a group we feel that it is important to get involved with this initiative,” he added.

“We want to stand with those who are battling health issues today and those who may have this battle on the road ahead.

“We want to play our part in not only raising awareness locally but also helping to raise vital funds for ground-breaking health projects across mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.”

Malvern RFC director of rugby, Rob Cook, also reiterated the importance of supporting such an event.

"It's a great cause that I have contributed to before," he said.

"The lads at the club are coming together this year to raise as much money as possible for what is a great cause."
