Barber B & The Man Van Project
Movember has ownership of the ManVan, a 38ft American-style motorhome converted into a mobile health and wellbeing service to support men and communities.
The Movember Board agreed that the ManVan be tested as an asset for health promotion, raising awareness and engagement as part of the Movember Health Promotion Plan for 2018.
The project ran from February 2018 – December 2018 across the rugby league season from the end of March 2018 to England Internationals in November 2018.
Rugby League fans attending matches are approx. 80% male. They have a passion for the sport and an affinity with their local clubs and players. Clubs are embedded in the community.
A partnership has been agreed with Rugby League Cares, to activate the project at Rugby League events and clubs across the North West, North East and the Yorkshire and Humberside regions of the UK.
Barber B and his team had to take a Morated barber’s exam, before they delivered the services on the man van project, and his involvement was to draw men into have a health conversation and to offer free grooming services at the man van.
The Man Van project was kindly sponsored with Moda Salon Interiors providing barbering equipment, including chairs.
