Staff and regulars at a Brixington pub have grown their ’taches for Movember to raise funds to help fight prostate cancer and raise awareness of men’s health.
Ryan Ousley, Richard Ousley, Mark Sayers, David Gerry, David Clarke, and Wesley Low, from The Farmhouse, became friends through their love of football, and decided to take on the Movember challenge for the second year in a row having all had friends or family affected by prostate cancer.
Wesley, who lost his grandfather to the disease, said: “Not only is this appeal a bit of fun, but it is close to all of our hearts and a charity that we feel strongly about.
“In total we have raised approximately £500, which is a great achievement between the six of us, especially with Christmas just around the corner.
“We are proud and thankful to friends, family and work colleagues for their contribution.
“We would also like to say thank you to our wives and girlfriends for putting up with the facial hair for 30 days!”
Donations are still being accepted, and these can be made through the Movember website or in person at The Farmhouse.
