Men across West Norfolk have sported some interesting facial hair to support the fundraising Movember campaign.
“Mo bros” across the area have raised thousands of pounds and raised awareness of prostate cancer by growing moustaches during November.
Staff at Bespak in North Lynn raised a fantastic £1,400 with a fundraising activities including a raffle, a moustache quiz and sponsorship.
A total of 22 men supported the event and were finally handed titles for the “best in show” along with the trendiest, bushiest, longest and even most pathetic ‘tache.
Facilities engineer Nigel White said: “We are really pleased to have raised so much money.
“One man was so keen he even dyed his moustache.”
The Rotary Club of Downham Market has raised more than £600.
A total of 15 members took part and a competition for the best moustache was held during the club’s Christmas dinner on Monday.
Women and guests at the dinner in The Moorings in Outwell judged members efforts and opted for the luxurious growth sported by Mike Coles.
The Gaywood Tesco store also got involved with Movember when 28 male staff members were seen to sport “gringo” and “trucker” ‘taches.
Six of their female colleagues supported the men on the final day by wearing fake moustaches.
The store’s Karina Russell said: “We are really pleased to have raised £400.
“The men were not sad to lose their moustaches.”
Hairdressing students at the College of West Anglia trimmed and tinted the facial fur donned by six male staff members.
Sports lecturer Scott Leadley hopes to have raised more than £100.
He said: “The fundraising has gone really well and has been supported by lots of people at the college.
“It’s a great experience working with my colleagues to raise the profile of men’s health; prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men.”
