and testicular cancer –  by offering free meal upgrades for anybody taking part.

The Wild Game Company, which pitches up at Whitecross Street Market on weekdays, is offering free upgrades from a venison burger to the deluxe £7.50 ‘Royal Stag’ burger throughout November for people participating in Movember, which raises funds and awareness for testicular and prostate cancer. It is also giving away free side dishes at its pop-up restaurant in Soho.

Ruaridh Emslie, Head of Operations at the Wild Game Co., told Islington Now how personal participation in Movember made him want to involve his business.

He said, “This is the first year we’ve done something in an official capacity, but I did it myself last year.

“We got approached to do the Movember cookbook, and it went from there. Movember suits our values – it’s a fairly laid-back attitude to doing something but something that is really good. It’s doing a lot for men’s health, which is a really good thing.”

The promotion has had some success, with Jan Smit (pictured) one of the dozens who have taken advantage of the deal so far.

But the offer is only available to registered ‘Mo Bros’ – people who have signed up through the official website – meaning just having facial hair doesn’t count for anything.

“We’ve had a few people every day [involved in the campaign], and also a lot of people who say they’re doing it unofficially,” explained Mr Emslie. “We want to give something back for people who are making a difference.”

A donations box at the stall means that even those who aren’t suitably moustached can still support the cause.


  1. Imponerende arbeid når disse bunkene er en tredjedel! Skal bli morsomt å se det ferdige teektp.Slipe tepper slites vel ikke ut, men blir noe å arve en dag, og med tanke på det er det vel verdt både arbeidet og prisen.Lykke til med innspurten!

  2. I do not shop using Google chrome coz i have seen that it stores my Credit Card Number. I would like to auto fill other information but not credit cardsI still feel safe using IE for that kind of stuff.

  3. MR. Proud Singh ji, your teachings are great and more significant than GURU SAHIBAN. I am at present in usa and am going back to india in the coming days and i will ask people who are known to me here,in india and in other countries where i am planing to go in near future to follow your teachings instead of gurus, so that people got salvation YOUR HOLINESS.

  4. I don't see what's wrong with link trading if people are actually writing meaningful comments. Captchas get rid of bots, and it's not hard to see the manual crap people write. My Utah real estate blog gets lots of asinine comments but they aren't hard to delete if they aren't contributing anything…
