The campaign is being run to raise money during the month of November, known as Movember, in support of the company’s charity partner, Prostate Cancer UK.
Sponsored by Currys PC World, SVM Global will also be encouraging others to grow a Mo, with a range of ways to send in a selfie in order to win one for 3 Currys PC World prizes, including £100, £50, and a £25 Gift Card
Balpreet Kaur, SVM Global Marketing Manager said of the event
“SVM Global is a very charitable place to work and the Movember campaign is something a lot of employees felt very passionate about supporting. Working with Curry’s PC World to help encourage other people to ‘grow a Mo’ is fantastic and we hope to see some fantastic facial topiary in the coming month!
As well as the campaign to build awareness externally, we are also sponsoring colleagues who plan to do any other fundraising activities for the charity in the month, including a bake sale.”
Charlotte Albert Business Development Manager at Currys PC World added

Notes to Editors
About Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in men in the UK. Over 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. Every hour 1 man dies from prostate cancer.
African Caribbean men are 3 times more likely to develop prostate cancer than white men of the same age.
Prostate Cancer UK fights to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life. We support men and provide vital information. We find answers by funding research into causes and treatments. And we lead change, raising the profile of the disease and improving care. We believe that men deserve better.
Anyone concerned about prostate cancer can call Prostate Cancer UK's confidential Helpline on 0800 074 8383 or visit or visit www.prostatecanceruk.org. The helpline is staffed by specialist nurses and open from 10am to 4pm on Monday to Friday and from 7 - 9pm on Wednesdays.
Movember, the month formerly known as November, is when brave and selfless men around the world grow a moustache, with the support of the women in their lives, to raise awareness and funds for men’s health - specifically prostate and testicular cancer.
It was established in 2003 by a few friends over a beer in a pub just outside Melbourne, Australia. The goal was simple – to create a campaign promoting the growth of the moustache among like-minded people and having fun along the way. It is about real men talking about real issues and changing the face of men’s health, one moustache at a time. Movember now spans the globe!
