Figure image
The Leicester Tigers efforts for Movember have raised more than £1,000 - and there is still time for fans to get involved.Tigers players, staff and fans have teamed up this month to do their bit for men’s health by growing their way to a moustache.   Their efforts have raised more than £1,000, and that figure is set to grow further with the auction of four exclusive signed Movember-inspired shirts.   The shirts have been signed by team captain Jordan Crane and some of his Tigers teammates including internationals Peter Betham, Freddie Burns and Tom Croft. The online auction lasts until Thursday (November 26) and the proceeds will go towards Tigers' Movember fundraising efforts. Click here to place your bid. There is still time to support the Tigers Movember team. Visit http://moteam.co/leicester-tigers to sign up or to sponsor the players, staff and supporters. George Catchpole is the top fundraiser among the players while Dave Beeby is leading the way among supporters. Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men's faces in the UK and around the world during November. The aim is to raise funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. Premiership Rugby and the Movember Foundation have this season launched a new partnership to improve the physical and mental health of rugby fans and contribute to the charity's fundraising efforts.
