Rome pub raises funds for cure and treatment of prostate cancer
As in previous years the Shamrock pub near the Colosseum is supporting Movember, the global, month-long initiative aimed at raising awareness and funds for the cure and treatment of prostate cancer and other diseases that affect men.
With the slogan "Grow a Mo, Save a Bro", signing up fully to Movember means growing a moustache throughout November, to help "change the face of men's health” by encouraging public discourse about an issue that many men often ignore or do not discuss.
The movement has a firm following among Rome's rugby players and their friends, whose headquarters off the pitch is the rugby-mad Shamrock which has been involved in the initiative since 2008.
This year the Shamrock's Movember party takes place on Saturday 29 November, from 10.00 onwards. Limited edition Movember t-shirts will be on sale for €15 throughout the day, with the pub donating all proceeds to the Movember Foundation.
