They nose it makes sense!

HAIRY-FACED teachers at West Lakes Academy have been bristling with excitement, getting into the Movember spirit to raise money for the charity.

Staff and pupils have raised £410.83 for the Movember cause which promotes men’s health, in particular testicular and prostate cancer.

Richard Johnston, modern languages teacher at the Egremont school, said: “It’s a really good way to raise awareness for men’s health issues as most men don’t talk about those things.

“When we’re walking in the school, or out and about, people will ask us why we are growing our moustaches and we can then explain – so it’s a good way to educate people.”

Teachers at the academy have been growing moustaches throughout November to collect a hair-raising £276.

The students also collected £134.83 by painting on moustaches for a 50p donation and gathered sponsors on behalf of their teachers.

Each year, the charity aims to encourage men to grow moustaches through its Movember campaign.
