Movember Returns To Pentagon

Pentagon is getting right behind this year’s Movember campaign with Mo Bros and Mo Sistas from dealerships across the UK pledging to help change the face of men's health.

  • Pentagon has once again joined up with other UK car dealers and thousands of sports teams, local and national businesses, teachers and community groups all getting involved in Movember by either growing a moustache during the month of November or supporting those who have pledged to cultivate a furry upper lip for 30 days.

    James Reeve, Marketing Director at Pentagon, is proud of the contribution that the company and its team members will be making to the Movember campaign this year.

    James said: ‘Growing a moustache is a relatively simple way to support such an important cause and it helps us to make both our team members and customers more aware of these male cancers and health issues.

    ‘Obviously, we’ll have to explain why our usually clean-shaven customer-facing staff don’t look their normal smooth and polished selves but I’m sure everyone will be really supportive. By the end of November we hope to have around a hundred impressive handlebar, pencil, horseshoe and ‘Tom Selleck’s’ to marvel at of course and a pot of Movember cash we can all be proud of.’

    Funds raised by Pentagon will support men's health initiatives funded by Movember itself and their men's health partners Prostate Cancer UK and The Institute of Cancer Research.

Notes to Editor:

Movember, the month formerly known as November, is when brave and selfless men around the world grow a moustache, with the support of the women in their lives, to raise awareness and funds for men’s health - specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

Movember is about real men growing real moustaches and talking about real issues
