High Peak men became hirsute last month, raising hundreds of pounds for Movember.

Everyone from councillors to commissioners, footballers to firms, joined forces to ditch their razors and grow a moustache for the annual November event.

Participants or “mo bros”, help raise awareness and funds, via sponsorship pages, for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health.

County Cllr Damien Greenhalgh, pictured with a faux handlebar ‘tash at the start of the month, raised more than £200 for the Movember Foundation.

He said: “I’d just like to say a huge thank you to all who sponsored, supported or laughed at me. All of which got people talking and helped raised the important issue of men’s health in the UK.”

Derbyshire Police and Crime Commisioner Alan Charles, alongside his deputy Hardyal Dhindsa and community engagement officer Andrew Davies, replaced their usually clean-shaven appearances with facial fur, raising nearly £200 to support this year’s Movember campaign.

Whaley Bridge’s Ben Bradley helped raise more than £1,000 as part of his employer Hurst Corporate Finance’s collective effort.

Chapel-en-le-Frith’s Ross Harwood and colleagues at Kelsa Truck Products, raised more than £100 as part of team Chapel Mo Bros.

While 12 players from Tintwistle AFC formed a “mo team”, led by captain Michael Halliwell, of Hadfield, raising £60.
