PROVING that men's cancers are 'mo' joke, chaps across the isle have been sporting facial fuzz to raise money for cancer research.

The Movember appeal asks men to grow a moustache throughout the month of November and get sponsorship at the same time.

Scissor-happy staff at Bogarts salon in Broadstairs raised £55.62 when barbers James Doe, Tony Doe and David Boyson endured a month of sprouting facial hair.

The usually clean-shaven Mr Doe said: "We would like to thank our customers for their generosity to this worthwhile cause."

At toy makers Hornby in Margate a posse of staff took up the challenge, including graphic designer Amber Harris who had a moustache painted on her for the final day.

Product designer Phil Morley took his efforts a step further and dyed his 'tache in Hornby red.

Estate agents Dan Woodward, Mark Brooks and Stuart Barr from Miles and Barr raised more than £500 with some superb examples and G Casino staff had their moustaches shaved off by Costa Butor at Ali Barbers in Ramsgate after raising £867.

Staff from Thanet Leisureforce grew moustaches, held a charity fancy-dress zumba class and a host of other events, collecting nearly £400 for the prostate cancer charity.

The Thanet Times' team of Andrew Woodman and Thomas Brown also joined in the fun. For photos of their moustaches visit our Facebook page (search Isle of Thanet Gazette) or sponsor them at mobro.co/hacksagainstrazors
