HOUSING association staff in Towcester went the extra mile to raise £1,700 for charity during Movember.

The group at the South Northants Homes donated their top lips to raise moneyfor The Prostate Cancer Charity, The Institute of Cancer Research and the Movember Foundation.

Doug Grace, SNH assistant director-property, who sported some impressive upper lip plumage said: “Despite the fact that everyone has had fun taking part, we are really glad that people have taken the cause seriously and donated generously.

“I am really proud of all of our efforts and hope that next year we can get more people involved and raise even more money.”

Movember is a campaign where men grow a moustache for the entire month of November and in recent years the event has become a global movement.

As well as the moustache growing, Mr Grace and three women colleagues, who also sported a measure of fake facial hair, took part in the Milton Keynes 10 kilometre ‘Mo Run’. The race saw participants run from Campbell Park around Willen Lake and back to the finish line outside the cricket pavilion in Campbell Park.
