GALLERY: Comet country Movember efforts
MEN will be shaving off their moustaches tomorrow (Thursday), as the start of the new month also marks the end of Movember.
As these pictures show, the charity campaign in which men grow moustaches throughout November has really sprouted in Comet country.
The sponsorship money that the aspiring Charlie Chaplins, Tom Sellecks and Burt Reynolds raise will go to prostate cancer and other male cancer charities.
Staff at Kingshott School had a ‘shave-off’ in front of pupils yesterday morning, who also got into the spirit by donning false moustaches. All money raised by the school will go to The Prostate Cancer Charity.
Stevenage’s SEC Group’s grew their own ‘taches, raising to date nearly �1,200 between them.
