A group of singers in Royston have completed a month-long effort to grow moustaches for global men’s health campaign, Movember – with Wimpole parkrunners also raising awareness of the cause.

Chris Lee and his fellow tenors at the Royston Choral Society took part in the annual November drive in support of a choir member recovering from prostate cancer. Chris said: “Saturday night’s concert Handel’s Messiah at Royston’s Parish Church was a great success and our real moustaches also performed very well.

“One tenor lost his bow tie and wore a false moustache in its place for the first half of the concert!”

Chris is also one of the 100 Wimpole parkrunners who donned moustaches to raise awareness during a run.
