Staff at a Windsor hospital are growing their best moustaches for Movember in order to raise money for and awareness of prostate and testicular cancer.
Men at the BMI Princess Margaret Hospital, in Osborne Road, are taking part in the nationwide campaign by growing facial hair. Female colleagues are also getting in on the act by wearing stick-on moustaches.
Amrith Raj Rao, consultant urological surgeon at the hospital, said: "Movember is a fantastic campaign that expresses a serious health message in a fun, man friendly way.
"We all know that men, can at times, put their health in second place and while we have seen a massive change to this perception in recent years its vitally important that all men are aware of what is normal for them and what symptoms they should be on the lookout for."
