Bristol Sport stars to support Nuts Over the Atlantic’s Movember cause

Bristol Rugby and Bristol City have joined forces with the lads from Nuts Over the Atlantic – the Bristol-based quartet preparing to row across the Atlantic – to support the Movember Foundation, the leading global organisation committed to changing the face of men's health.

The ‘Nuts Over the Atlantic’ team - made up of Dan Baker, Steve Baker, Mark Gibson and Jon Lakin - will take on the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge in little under six weeks’ time, with Bristol Sport Foundation donating £5,000 to the team’s cause.

And now, the stars of Bristol City FC and Bristol Rugby have got behind the team – and their fantastic cause – in conventional Movember fashion, by growing a moustache. You can keep up to date with the players’ mo-gress by clicking here.

Bristol City coaches Jamie McAllister and Dean Holden, as well as kit man and club legend, Scott Murray have already signed up, while Nick Fenton-Wells and Alex Giltrow lead a team of players and staff at Bristol Rugby. 

"We had the pleasure of meeting the guys from Nuts over the Atlantic recently," said City assistant head coach, Jamie McAllister. "It's amazing what they are doing to raise money for Movember and hopefully we can support them with our furry top lips."

“We’re delighted to be able to support Movember and Nuts Over the Atlantic by sporting some very questionable facial hair throughout November,” added Bristol Rugby’s Nick Fenton-Wells.

“With the crazy foursome getting ready to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic, growing a moustache is the least we can do to support them and their fantastic cause.”

The Movember Foundation raises funds to deliver innovative, breakthrough research and support programmes that enable men to live happier, healthier and longer lives. Committed to disrupting the status quo, millions have joined the movement, helping fund over 1,200 projects focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer and suicide prevention.

In addition to tackling key health issues faced by men, the Foundation is working to encourage men to stay healthy in all areas of their life, with a focus on men staying socially connected and becoming more open to discussing their health and significant moments in their lives.

The Foundation’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.
