Bespak staff won prizes for the most pathetic to bushiest, longest and trendiest moustache after enduring a prickly month in aid of charity.

A total of 18 ‘Mo Bros’ at the North Lynn factory grew tremendous ‘tashes to raise funds and awareness of prostate and testicular cancer. Movember challenges men to grow a moustache for the 30 days of November.

It was the third year staff at the medical device manufacturer took part in the challenge, which has raised more than £1,000 so far. Facilities engineer Nigel White said: “We raised £1,046 even before the sponsorship which should have all come in by the middle of December.”

There were nine awards up for grabs this year, including the most ginger moustache and most artistic, to the most persistent trier, moustache most suited the its owner and most sponsorship money raised.

The ‘tashes were judged by ladies from the firm’s Human Resources department, who joined in the fun with their very own stick-on versions.

Mr White said: “It was a good laugh once again, and a brilliant way of raising awareness of men’s health.”
