Join Sale Sharks in supporting Movember

Lou Reed

A chance conversation in the Sale Sharks canteen may have led to his appointment as the club’s 2016 Mo Captain, but Lou Reed insists now he is at the helm he is desperate to top the fundraising tables.

Last year’s Mo Captain Jonathan Mills has been ruled out of the next few weeks of action with an injury and Reed jumped at the chance to fill the void as the Sharks Movember skipper.
Helping others overcome both the physical and the mental health issues that Movember aims to tackle is a cause close to his heart, and with a healthy moustache already on the way, Reed is hoping to set the standard.

“Jonathan Mills apparently did a really good job last year, and I got chatting to him in the canteen and he just picked up an injury so he’s not around here as much as he’d like to be,” he said.

“So I said I’ll go ahead and do it and I’m excited to take on the responsibility and hopefully raise plenty of money.

“I’ve got a couple of friends who have been affected by a few of the illnesses that the charity covers so it’s a significant cause for me.

“I’ve done it before as well, and my facial hair is pretty prominent so I’d like to think I’m perfect for it. I shave on a Monday and by Thursday afternoon I’ve got it all back!

“I knew a little bit about it when I was playing back in Wales and did some fundraising then, and I’m just trying to get as many people on board as I can.”

  • The Movember Foundation is the only global charity focused solely on men’s health
  • Men are dying too young, on average men die 4 years younger than women in the UK
  • Premiership Rugby are urging rugby fans to join the Movember movement and take action.

To date, the Movember Foundation has funded over 1,200 men’s health programmes around the world, focusing primarily on prostate cancer, testicular cancer and suicide prevention.

None of this can happen without the incredible community of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas, and Premiership Rugby is supporting the Movember Foundation to create a Mo League.

Sale, alongside the other 11 Premiership Rugby clubs, are helping to spread the word by grooming weird and wonderful moustaches throughout the month of November.

But according to Reed, some of his younger teammates’ efforts are not quite up to scratch just yet.

He added: “I’ve got a few personal friends who are donating on my page and I’ve got a couple of team members who are doing it.

“It helps with team bonding too. A lot of the younger guys, the academy guys who can’t really grow facial hair, are having a try and that adds to the banter in the group.”
