A Lichfield man will be showing a stiff upper lip as he takes part in a charity moustache-growing event.

Nick Brickett, a Lichfield photographer, is taking part in the Movember fundraiser.

The event sees men up and down the country letting their moustaches grow during November to raise funds for men’s health.

Nick, who is also part of the team behind The Lichfield Blog, said:

“I have decided to put down my razor for one month to help raise awareness and funds for men’s health – specifically prostate cancer.

“What many people don’t appreciate is that one man dies every hour of prostate cancer in the UK, more than 35,000 men will be diagnosed this year and that prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. Facts like these have convinced me I should get involved and I am hoping that you will support me.”

People can donate to Nick’s Movember fundraising effort by either:

  • Visiting the website and donate online using your credit card, debit card or PayPal account.
  • Writing a cheque payable to ‘The Prostate Cancer Charity – Movember’, referencing the registration Number 248964 and mailing it to: Movember – The Prostate Cancer Charity, First Floor, Cambridge House, Cambridge Grove, London, W6 0LE.

Movember is now in its third year in the UK. More details on the event can be found on the official website.

Founder of LichfieldLive and editor of the site.
