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! 🙂
