A mo-vellous effort


Eastbourne’s men have been busy raising awareness and money for cancer charities with Movember.

They grew moustaches throughout the month and finally shaved them off over the weekend as they began collecting donations for men’s cancer charities including ones for prostate and testicular cancer.

Eastbourne firefighters, staff and students at Sussex Downs and Ratton School and staff at Brewers were among those who took part.

Brewers staff raised more than £5,000.

Thousands of people take part in the annual event which was started in a bid to encourage men to keep healthy.
