The Newtownards opticians at Specsavers waved goodbye to their razors for the month of November and wore their ‘Mo Bro’ moustaches with pride, raising £85 for the international charity, Movember.

David Nelson, Andy Coates, Lee Mageehan, Chris Mcilmurray, Richard Selfridge and Ross Hughes undertook the annual, worldwide moustache growing charity event.

‘Very proud’

Leigh Nelson, store director at Newtownards Specsavers says: 'We are all very proud of the guys for sticking this out for the duration of the month.

‘Movember is the perfect opportunity to remind men to have annual check-ups and to research any history of the disease in their family. We as a team are delighted to have been able to help the six staff members raise £85 for the Movember charity – it has been a worthwhile fundraising initiative.'

'While they may have made for an amusing sight at the end of the month, we would all like to thank everyone who donated, and supported each of our gents.’
