A NUMBER of male staff members at Forfar Academy have signed up to take part in ‘Movember’.

Movember is a fundraising idea to raise awareness of men’s health issues, where the participants have to grow a moustache during the month of November.

The funds raised in the UK support the two main male specific cancers, prostate and testicular. All funds raised are directed to The Prostate Cancer Charity and the Institute of Cancer Research.

In 2010, £11.7 million was raised in the UK alone during November.
