MOVEMBER IS HERE………………(updated 18th November 2014)

The Whitstable Town squad have committed themselves to the Movember event this year led by midfielder Jake Mackenzie.

The proceeds from the Whitstable Town Movember will be for the Demelza House Children’s Hospice.

A message from supporter Steve Dale who is a volunteer and  Ambassador for Demelza House.

“Demelza House Children’s Hospice opened in 1998 and is a 10-bedded hospice in Sittingbourne providing respite care, symptom control, end-of-life care and bereavement support to over 800 families. We now help over 150 children in East Sussex and have a 6-bedded hospice in south east London.

Fundraising is vital to our success and the running costs of all our services are approximately £9 million per year. Demelza only receives a small amount of government funding and relies almost entirely on fundraising to run its services. Last year 75% of our money came from donations and community fundraising.”

I hope this helps and you can use at least some of it to encourage the squad, supporters and anybody else to do what they can. On behalf of the children I thank everyone concerned with helping Demelza in any way possible”

“Movember is about bringing back the moustache (Mo), having fun and doing good to change the face of men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. Mo Bros take action by changing their appearance through the growth of a new moustache for the 30 days of Movember, and in doing so become walking, talking billboards for men’s health. Mo Sistas sign up and commit to supporting the men in their lives while helping to promote men’s health at home, in the workplace and within their community.”
