Remember, Remember the 6th of Movember

We are now six days into Movember, so its time for a PiggyBank Loans mo update.

We have a new member to our hairy bunch. Julian, our Financial Director, has
decided to join in the fun! So now we are five.

So far none of us are looking particularly ridiculous, but that will definitely come in
time. Darren has started incredibly well and already has a fully-fledged mo, Julian,
John, Frankie and I still have some way to go to really show the mo.

Even the mascot of PiggyBank loans, Hamm Pig, has decided to get in the spirit of
Movember and grow a mo. So everyone here is doing their best to get behind this
incredible feat for a wonderful cause.

Here is an update from a couple of members of the team:


‘I’m enjoying the mo growth so far, although it is a bit blond/grey/ginger, which
makes for an interesting combo. My girlfriend has moaned a little, but she is trying
to be supportive. I’m thinking about buying some just for men to really make my mo
stand out from the crowd.’


Given my lack of progress on the facial hair front, I decided to do a bit of reading up
on what exactly it is that Mo Sistas do. As well as regularly complimenting my team
on their progress, I thought it was time I brought something a little more measurable
to the table.

Welcome please, the “Mo Swearing Please” Jar. It’s not that we’re foul mouthed
here at PiggyBank, just… expressive. However you look at it, it’s filling up quickly.
Watch this space 🙂


‘I joined the PiggyBank Loans team a little bit late, but I’m very proud to be involved
in Movember this year. It is well worth making myself look ridiculous for this great

Our Little Bit For Charity

As one of the most responsible short term lenders in the market, it’s safe to say that we all have a strong social conscience at PiggyBank loans. This November we have decided to help raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancer by participating in Movember.

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

So Darren, John, Frankie and I have all joined forces to grow a mo and use our collective energy to raise as much awareness and money for Movember as we can.

Let’s meet our team of mo growing heros-


I’m Dan, the CEO of PiggyBank loans. I’m supporting Movember this November because although big steps have been taken towards changing attitudes and habits relating to men’s health around the world, there is still much to be done to catch up with the women’s health movement. Via the mo, I aim to spark conversation and spread awareness of men’s health. I will be aiming for a handlebar mustache to maximize me own embarrassment, and thus raise more money and awareness.


I’m Darren, IT Director for PiggyBank Loans. So here we are again! Movember comes around so quickly each year. Having participated a few years ago I enter this year’s Movember with some trepidation. My mind is already cycling through the options. Should this year be a repeat of previous years with a subtle gangster pencil tash, should it be a classic Tom Sellek straight out of the 1980s or does this year bring the full guns blazing handlebar. One thing is certain; my wife is going to hate it! Anyway mustache, things to do, tash to grow.


I’m Frankie, Head of Customer Service for PiggyBank Loans. I’m really excited to be getting the opportunity to partake in Movember for the first time this year. We don’t believe that any problems are impossible to solve at PiggyBank, so we’re not letting something as insignificant as my XX chromosomes stop me getting involved! So in Movember, I’ll be ditching “PiggyBank Frankie” in favour of “PiggyBank Frank” and donning an array of suitably extravagant tashes – all in the name of charity 🙂


I’m John, Senior Developer for PiggyBank Loans. This is my first Movember participation. Normally for me to grow a top lip slug I would need a 3 month run-up. I’m looking forwards to winning the least impressive mustache award, and to people questioning if I am actually taking part. But hey, what is a little personal humiliation in the face of raising money for charity.

So that’s us! 🙂
