For the last 30 days I like many other blokes, have been tentatively growing shoots of hair atop my upper lip in the vain hope of becoming more masculine and most importantly to raise funds and awareness for the Irish Cancer Society’s Action Prostate Cancer.

It’s been a fun experience.
With thanks to 15 Movember donators, I have raised €275 so far but as today is the last day, if you have a spare fiver or tenner, please visit this link to donate by Laser or Card. It’s for a great cause. As it’s for charity, a picture of me with my mo and tickler is after the jump.
