A number of Wrexham Rugby Club senior players are taking on the challenge of Movember this month.

The charity was set up in 2003 to try and support men with mental health, Prostate cancer and Testicular cancer.

They have now funded over 1,250 men's health projects globally, and raised £74.8m in 2020, yet so much more is needed to be done.

Ben Martin, a PT at Q Fitness in Wrexham is aiming to play his part.

"Globally, the rate of Suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men," he said.

"Too many men are 'toughing it out', keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence. Movember is aiming to reduce the rate of male suicide by 25% by 2030 and I want to help them get there.

"They're doing amazing things for men's mental health as a whole trying to tackle suicide rates as well as looking to help cancer patients.

"My girlfriend can't stand the thought of me having a big ginger moustache on my face for a month, which is enough motivation to donate."

Assistant coach at Wrexham Rugby Club, Rob Jones is partaking for the first time this year.

"I'm getting involved because it shows support to those that need it," he said.

"It's so important that men's charities like these are supported because it gives people that are struggling a sense of well-being, knowing people are getting involved in challenges like this.

"Due to work regulations, I haven't been able to do this before, but the lads doing it has prompted me to give it a go and I will be trying to go full Magnum PI."
