Alex Needs Mo' Money!

11 November 2011 at 18:35

Hi all, Alex Waring, Men's 1stXI skipper, here.

It’s Movember, the month formerly known as November, now dedicated to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men’s health; specifically prostate and testicular cancer. I’m donating my top lip to the cause for 30 days in an effort to help change the face of men’s health. My Mo will spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for cancer’s affecting men.

Why am I concerned about men’s health?
*1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
*This year 37,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed
*1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime
*26% of men are less likely to go the doctor compared to women

I invite you to join me by registering to grow or by donating to my support of the Mo

If you want to go old school you can write a cheque payable to “Movember”, reference my name and Registration Number 2616314 and send it to: Movember Europe, PO Box 68600, London, EC1P 1EF

Or just shove some cash in my hand next time you see me and I'll make sure it gets to the right place.

Funds raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others. Through the Movember Foundation and our men’s health partners, The Prostate Cancer Charity and The Institute of Cancer Research, Movember is funding world class awareness, research, educational and support programs which would otherwise not be possible. 

For more details on how the funds raised from previous campaigns have been used and the impact Movember is having please click on the links below:

Thank you in advance for helping me change the face of men's health.

Unprecedented Day of Hockey for Stroud

07 November 2011 at 09:04

Saturday proved to be an historic day for Ecotricity-sponsored Stroud Hockey Club, all 6 teams winning with a net result of 37-2, a veritable rugby score !  The Ladies’ 1st XI secured a 5-0 away win to take them into 3rd spot, whilst the Ladies’ 2nd XI gained their 3rd League victory of the season with a convincing 4-1 victory.  The Men’s U16 Badgers started relatively slowly away to Sherborne, but invested their 1-0 lead well to come out 6-0 winners with 2 goals from Andrew Reader and one apiece from Alex Richards, Danny Sopp, Jamie Penmore and Seb Wathen.  The Men’s 1st XI took Bridgend apart at home, 6-0, helped by captain Alex Waring’s hat trick, thus placing them 2nd in North 1.  The Men’s 2nd XI cruised to a 12-0 win away to Cleevillians A, Calum Norman claiming a hat trick in a match with six different scorers.  This leaves Stroud 4 points clear at the top of HG1 after six League games.

It was a fine way to start the Guy Fawkes Day celebrations which culminated in a social event at The Crown and Sceptre.  A marvellous hog roast and explosive firework display were a fitting tribute to a fine day’s hockey and a good way to celebrate Rob Waite’s 30th birthday.
