AS November is progressing, so too are the moustaches of those taking part in this month’s Movember campaign to raise money and awareness of men’s health.
Ten of the Kemp family, four of whom live in Bury St Edmunds, are growing hair in support of their relative Charlie Massie who has recently completed a nine-week course of chemotherapy, after being diagnosed with testicular cancer.
“He’s the only one unable to grow a moustache because he’s just finished chemo,” said John Kemp, of his son-in-law.
“My own focus on it is I’m trying to concentrate, not on cancer but on being well,” said John’s son Jonathon, impressed at the campaign’s understanding of men’s competitive nature.
The Kemps are aiming to raise £1,000.

Meanwhile, at least 17 men from the brewing arm of Greene King are growing moustaches in all shapes, sizes and colours.
All have donated a registration fee which will go directly to Greene King’s local charity, Bury based Focus12, but the team is hoping to raise more than £1,000 for the Movember charities as well.
