A group of brave South West Londoner souls sacrificed their dashing good looks for Movember for a whole month and are set to finish in style.
But all eight chaps are determined to make every last moment count and won’t rest until the likes of Tom Selleck and Nick Offerman stand in awe.

But Mo Bro Sam Dix silenced the haters. He said: “There are some moments in your life that just stick with you.

At the other end of the ‘tache scale Josh has had some stick in the last month.
For the last four weeks he has valiantly tried to furnish his upper lip and cultivate something.

Josh said: “The past month has confirmed what we all believed to be the case from day one – I am embarrassingly incapable of growing a moustache.
“At least the endless bouts of laughter at my expense have helped to raise money for a fantastic cause.”
Sam Meadows and Steven Prince were consistent in their tache-growing abilities and earned the recognition of fellow moustache growers.

Check out the ‘tache on him!
