Stoke Gigs joins Movember Campaign

In case you didn’t already know, this month is dedicated to facial hair, all in the name of changing the face of men’s health and raising money for some very important charities!

Stoke Gigs has decided to join the cause and aim to raise as much money as possible. If you want to join the Stoke Gigs Mo-Team and help us raise money, or just donate, click here or the Movember logo.
