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.

Wimpole parkrunners get into the Movember spirit.Wimpole parkrunners get into the Movember spirit.

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.
