A TEAM from Gurit has raised more than £1,000 thanks to their mighty moustaches.

The facial hair fundraising was in aid of Movember, an international effort to fight prostate and testicular cancers, which encourages people to grow a moustache in return for sponsorship.

Prototyping shop manager Dave Thompson, who dyed his eye-catching effort a rainbow of different colours (pictured below), said: "It is a great charity to be involved with and really brings people together as you watch their mo’s grow during the month.

"Each year we raise more money as more colleagues get involved.

"It is a really good team effort."
