Warwick University Rugby League raise £704 for Movember



Warwick University Rugby League raised £704 for Movember last month, in a team effort to raise both funds and awareness for certain issues affecting men's health.


The money that each member individually raised went to the cause of their choice, with charities tackling suicide in young men being the most popular cause our members got behind. Money for charities tackling testicular cancer were also supported.


Callum Linton raised the most money out of the WURL members participating, having raised £207. He was followed by Benjamin Macintyre, on £138 and Ethan Cross on £110.


"It was good to see so many of our guys get involved this year." Said Adam Fairhurst, president of Warwick University Rugby League. "There was no shortage of causes to support and everyone will have their own story about how one of these issues has affected their lives or the lives of a loved one. As a club we're proud of our effort this year and we'll look to build on it in years to come."


Of course, Movember means attempts at facial hair with varying degrees of success - below are some of WURL's own, mildly dubious, efforts.
