The Impossible Market will be going all manly to raise awareness for Men’s health and support Movember, with the help of Kloster MINI Garage and The Edwards. The November market night on Sunday 8 is an official fundraising Mo Party, complete with a pop-up shops curated especially for the guys, live music, a fella-friendly market menu, beers, a barber and a moustached MINI parked on-site.
Since starting in Melbourne in 2003, more than five million people have joined Movember, raising funds and awareness and helping fund over 1,000 men’s health projects globally in the areas of prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.
The Impossible Market has pledged to raise a target of $1,000, with a commitment by Kloster MINI Garage to kick off the proceedings with a $250 donation. Market-goers are encouraged to join in the spirit of the evening and get competitive in some fun(draising) games.
“Too many men don’t talk, don’t take action and die too young. For the month of Movember, men in Newcastle will become walking, talking billboards for men’s health. We want to help create these connections and get blokes talking, so are doing our bit by dedicating this night to the men in our lives,” said Rebecca Stern, creator of the Impossible Market.
The themed night will be feature plenty of gifts and treats specifically for the blokes, with traditional men’s grooming products by The Mister Brand, cruelty free leather accessories, locally made tattoo cream and funky outdoors items from Islington’s Yardsale pop-up shop.
Also on display will be artisan ceramic homewares, wooden plant hangers by Creative Space, small batch cold press coffee by Hubros, unique taxidermy and planters by Boxheadisdead and artisan leather goods by Geordie Malone. In a nod to the industrial makers and refurbishers, Howl Furniture, Tiny Design and Conroy & Co will also be on show.
