Men are facing a health crisis that isn't being talked about. Too many men are dying too young, before their time. We can't afford to stay silent. We need to talk about it. We need to act.
It is for this reason that this year we've chosen to support two charities, the Movember Foundation and mental health charity Mind. We will be promoting the work of these charities to the business, and encouraging everyone to get involved with fundraising and raising awareness.
We will be kick-starting our fundraising efforts with a shaving challenge for Movember, bravely undertaken by Bob James, Executive Director at BAM Nuttall.
Bob has agreed to say goodbye to his long serving Moustache to help us raise money for Movember. Thursday the 17th of November will see Bob part from his moustache at the iconic Tower Bridge where we are currently working, with a professional barber shaving it off.

The Movember Foundation funds game-changing men's health projects, challenging the status quo and helping men live happier, healthier and longer lives. Their website (https://uk.movember.com/) provides information on how you can get involved and support the world's biggest movement for men's health.
If you or someone you know needs support in health matters, the website offers a host of resources (https://uk.movember.com/mens-health/general).
Confidential support and advice is also available through the company's employee assistance programme (further information on Connect) or from the human resources department.
Please look out for additional information on Movember within the forthcoming Culture Survey communications.
