Two and a half weeks into Movember (and an introduction to Sir Henry Morton Stanley)

Things are going well with Carbomap’s Movember campaign, with the team having raised £60 just halfway through the month. I’m sure many of you will be holding out until the end of November to donate (making sure we keep the moustaches until the very end) but why not help us keep the momentum going and donate early? Here is our team page!

As we’ve said before, all the money donated goes to men’s health charities, so it’s all for a good cause!

But of course, we couldn’t update you without covering another famous moustache from history, and to keep on the same theme of explorers in Africa, our choice today is Sir Henry Morton Stanley.

Perhaps the most famous thing he did (or said rather) was the eternal phrase, “Dr. Livingstone, I presume?”. Welshman, Stanley made an exploration of central Africa and searched for the missionary explorer David Livingstone. Sir Henry is attributed with the European discovery of the source of the Nile, and was knighted in 1899, five years before his death at the age of 63.
