Hair-raising scenes for Movember in Cumbria

SOME Movember madness saw a police sergeant use his hairy top lip to create some tash-tastic photos of famous moustache wearers.

Throughout November Chris Bethell became Borat, Inspector Clouseau, Blackadder, actor Terry-Thomas, Freddie Mercury, Constable Crabtree from ‘Allo ‘Allo! and Lord Lucan.

The Barrow-based officer blogged, tweeted and Facebooked the pictures throughout the awareness month and has so far raised £400.

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world.

With their “Mo’s”, men raise vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health.

Sgt Bethell said: “I know several people who in recent months have been diagnosed with serious illnesses.

“Having friends who have had to suffer through no fault of their own, I became acutely aware of how lucky I am.

“This is just my way of giving a little back and raising awareness about men’s health.

“By creating a different face every day during the final week and writing humorous dialogue and verses, I found a fun way to catch the attention of many good friends on Facebook and Twitter.

“Their comments, encouragement and generosity has been a terrific mo-tivator.

“So far this week, over £400 has been raised and still people are sending me donations.

“If anyone would like see to see the daily updates and make a donation to this terrific cause, please visit mobro.co/chrisbethell137.”

As an independent, global charity, Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on men’s health.

It challenges men to grow a moustache for the 30 days of November, thereby changing their appearance and the “face” of men’s health.
