Seventeen brave members of Hythe firm HolidayExtras.com grew a ‘tash for cash’ to raise money for The Prostate Cancer Charity last month.
For four weeks, the team swapped their razors for the rugged look – and asked people to sponsor them in the process.
The fundraising event had its own web page on HolidayExtras.com where people could make a donation, and each participant showed a daily photo update of their moustaches’ progress.
The Movember team’s efforts meant they were not only bristly faced but also bristling with money: a superb total of £1,947 was raised.
Matthew Paxton, Chief Operating Officer, said: “We’ve always got time for fun at HolidayExtras.com – and even more when it goes hand-in-hand with raising money for a worthwhile cause.
“Everybody who took part was a fantastic sport – but I think I can speak for the whole team in saying it was a relief to shave on December 1.”

Movember is a worldwide event that raises funds and awareness for men’s health.
