Hair of the Dog; a Movember’s Tale.

Posted by admin - November 28, 2014 - Uncategorized - No Comments

Another year gone. 363 days to go until the next annual November social is upon us. We at LUUMHC pride ourselves on our inability to grow top lip facial fair and raise money, through our love of boozing, for one of the most overlooked charities in the country. This year we chose upon the continued theme of Mexicans (Old Boys) and a traditional Mexican delicacy – Nachos with all the trimmings (Freshers).

The final Social was a great success and over the past month have raised £200. As well as this, the ever loyal Strawbs managers Kev and Yvette, donate half of what we raise to our given charity which makes the grand total a solid £300! On top of this, we wear our tashes with the utmost pride for a cause we have supported for years and years and always goes down well – especially at a University like Leeds where many others follow similar trends. As we award prizes for the best tashe, commended efforts and the ‘Gary Neville’ award

There are those who do not favour so fortunately in the facial hair department. We don’t want to disgrace or discredit, as these loving members still make no advances on the fluffy pubey stubble that is left to wilt on the upper lip for 30 days. they, to the best of their efforts, are raising awareness. If not for others, then for themselves.

Prostate cancer is a very serious thing, and we take our inspiration from our very own Kev Clarke (CEO Strawberry Fields Bar). We spoke to him on Wednesday evening and he quite delicately put:


“I look like a prick, to save your dick”

Movember is always an enjoyable social as we get to do what we love best and do it for a good cause. The next big roundup will be early in to the December month when we celebrate the clubs outstanding diversity and head to Akmals for the Christmas curry.
