UCL’s best moustaches of Movember
Out comes the Gillette as Movember finally comes to an end
During November, many individuals and sports teams chose to participate in Movember – a charity that raises awareness for mens mental health, suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
The official UCL Movember page outlines that “UCL are looking to educate Men and Women about the issues of Testicular Cancer, Prostate Cancer, as well as Mental Health and Suicide Prevention.”
All together UCL raised a total of nearly £21,000 for the charity, with the top 3 sports teams raising most money being:
1. UCL Men’s football club (£9,333.45)
2. UCL Men’s rugby (£4,152.35)
3. RUMS Football Club (£1,220)
In ending the month, The London Tab assessed and put together our top picks under relevant categories. So check out below for our favourite moustaches of Movember 2021:

And here is a collection all of the moustaches grown during November by the sports teams:

UCL Emperors American Football
Overall, an overwhelming number UCL students, including 16 UCL sports team, showed their support for the Movember movement this November by growing a moustache. But as fun and lighthearted this campaign is, the global crisis it tries to address shouldn’t be ignored. Around 10.8 million men globally will face life with a prostate cancer diagnosis. And one man dies by suicide every minute of the day, with males accounting for 69% of all suicides worldwide.
