Staff and students at Yeovil College will donning a wealth of facial fuzz this month as part of the 2012 Movember campaign.
Lee Brooks and his hairy team of Yeovil college fundraisers are sprouting facial hair this month for Movember
Movember is an international campaign taking place during November each year. The aim is to raise awareness and funds for men's prostate and testicular cancer.
The Yeovil College Movember team are seven members strong and have dubbed themselves the 'Mo Bros'.
Staff from Performing Arts, Engineering and Construction and IT faculties are all taking part and they even have a team captain.
That team captain is Lee Brooks, a seasoned fundraiser and IT Technician at Yeovil College.
He said: "After losing my mum, I started fundraising for cancer charities.
"This month is the sixth anniversary of her passing and I thought it was time to organise something different and bring as many people together to take part as possible."
"We are inviting anyone from Yeovil College, including students, and anyone who would like to join our team to help us raise awareness and hopefully as much money as we can for Movember – while also having a laugh at each other's upper lip hair of course!"
