Staff and students at a Hornchurch school are doing their bit to raise money and awareness of male cancer.

A group teachers at Suttons Primary School, Suttons Lane, have stopped shaving their upper lip for a month as part of the Movember campaign.

Meanwhile last Friday students donned false moustaches as part of a non-uniform day and held fundraising events for the charity.

Movember is designed to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancers and stimulate discussion of the issues surrounding it.

They have so far raised around £150 for the charity and more events are being held next week.

Year 6 teacher Peter Morell said: “They had a great time, it was good fun and it was quite sweet watching them trying to run around with their stick-on moustaches on.”
