The hairiest month of the year is in full swing here at Bingo Extra... yes, it's Movember! Twenty-one members of the bingo and slots team are participating this year, and they're doing the whole of BingoExtra.com seriously proud by earning more than £820 already, WTG WTG!

The Bingo Extra ‘Mo Bros’ (cheered on by their ‘Mo Sistas’) made sure they were clean shaven on the 1st of November, and are now racing towards the finish, grooming their upper lips and facial hair to raise money for charity.

Do you know how it all began? Back in 2003, two mates met up for a quiet beer in Melbourne, Australia and they sparked the idea of Movember – by finding 30 guys willing to take the challenge of growing and grooming their moustaches during the month of November.

Since then Movember has gained great momentum across the globe with hundreds of thousands of people getting fuzzy for one single cause - to raise funds and awareness for men’s health in general, and for prostate and testicular cancer in particular.

Are you or someone you know taking part in Movember? If so, we’d love to see your efforts, please send us a picture! If not, it’s not too late: from bushy Handlebar, to thick Toothbrush, narrow pencil, long Fu Machu, big Hungarian, and Free Flow – there’s still time to choose a wide range of styles for the last stretch of November… start growing today! 

Thanks for reading :) If you would like to donate to Movember you can do so here.
