SW Londoner mo bros – we salute you! As Movember comes to a close we look at their fan-tache-tic efforts

At the start of November four members of South West Londoner signed up to cultivate a ‘tache and become a mo’ bro.

Thirty days later and here we are, showcasing the fruits of our hairy labour.

¡MOUSTACHE GRACIAS! The SW Londoner team would like to thank everyone who’s donated

Safe to say I’m ready to shave and embrace my fuzz-free face but as the saying goes it was fun while it lasted.

HAS IT GROWN ON HIM? Mathieu will be bidding his ‘tache adieu on December 1

Fellow mo’ bro Ross Lawson said: “The ‘tache has been with me through the tough times, so it’s going to be sad to see it go.

“However it’s for the best, and now I’ll hopefully be able to see what I looked like a mere month ago.”

HAPPY TIMES: Will Ross be as happy tomorrow when he bids farewell to his ‘tache?

Fellow moustache grower James Johnston broke the news to his facial hair using that old phrase ‘it’s not you, it’s me’ and will part ways tomorrow.

He revealed: “I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and the chance to get rid of my facial fuzz.

IT’S NOT YOU, IT’S ME: James will bid farewell to his moustache tomorrow

“Over the past month I’ve grown accustomed to the old boy but all good things must come to an end and that is why I announce today that come December 1 we will be going our separate ways.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to being such a good companion, you will be deeply missed, until next year…perhaps.”

Despite his initial doubts one member of our quartet has found enjoyment in the hairiest month of the year.

David Marsh said: “At first I wasn’t keen and I used to notice some of the looks I was getting while walking down the street.

“But I soon realised that it was nothing more than sheer jealously and I’ve slowly started to embrace it and it’s really grown on me. Quite literally.

“What I have enjoyed is when I walk past a fellow ‘mo bro’ on the street and we trade mutual nods of respect. No words needed, just a nod.

“My favourite part about having a moustache has been when I sip on a pint of my beloved Guinness and the froth sticks to it – it makes me feel even more masculine than I already am.

“I’ve heard all sorts of cheap insults, none of which bother me in the slightest – what’s kept me going is that it’s for a great cause and I’m glad that I can say I’ve done it and raised some money in the process.”

I MOUSTACHE YOU A QUESTION: Have you donated yet?

For now all that can be done is make the most of our final day as ultimately we bow in the face of an eclectic bunch of previous celebrity moustache growers such as Freddie Mercury, Mitchell Johnson and Ron Burgundy.

We just need that final push to get us over the line and reach our target and more importantly continue raise awareness of testicular and prostate cancer.

Thank you very much to everyone who’s donated so far. To those of you who haven’t our fundraising link is below.
