HERE at the Advertiser, reporter Joe Faretra has shunned his razor this month to take part in Movember.

He has joined many others across the UK who have grown their moustaches during November to raise cash and awareness for prostate cancer.

Joe said: “I have never grown a moustache before, it has always been accompanied by a beard.

“I feel I have to explain myself in public places, saying it is for charity and not how I usually look.

“I lost my dad recently to cancer, so anything that raises awareness and helps to find a cure for this terrible disease is worth doing, however shameful I look.”

But how have the menfolk of Andover fared with growing their facial hair this month?

We want to see the best, and the worst, efforts.

Email us pictures of your moustaches, with a short write up about why you have taken part in Movember, to jennifer.rivett@andover and we will publish our favourites.
