MEN have been downing their razors and beard trimmers this month in pursuit of the perfect moustache.

During Movember hairy top lips have sprouted to raise awareness and funds for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

Movember was established in 2003 by a few friends over a beer in a pub just outside Melbourne, Australia.

The goal was simple: to create a campaign promoting the growth of the moustache among likeminded people and having fun along the way.

It is about real men, talking about real issues and changing the face of men’s health, one moustache at a time.

Movember now spans the globe, with campaigns in 21 countries in 2012.

If you have cultivated your own fabulous moustache for Movember then we'd love to hear from you.

Send us your pictures - and a few words about yourself and why you're taking part - to editor@solihullobserver.co.uk, tweet us @solihullobserve or post on our wall at www.facebook.com/solihullobserver.
