It’s not the answer to a bizarre pub quiz question but rather some of the moustaches which have sprouted on the top lips of men around Huddersfield this month.

Many men in the town have taken up the Movember challenge – to grow a moustache through the month of November for charity.

The aim is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

We want to highlight the hair-raising work of Huddersfield's Movember members and need your help.

We’d love to feature pictures of people taking part in the month-long event - both clean shaven at the start of the month and with a cracking Ned Flanders-style cookie duster at the end of it.

We’ll collate the pictures and if we get enough we may open up a public vote to choose a winner who scoops £100 for their chosen charity.

If we only get enough to fill a tiny top lip we’ll still give away £100, but we’ll appoint a panel of facial fluff experts to sort the handlebars from the has-beens.

Examiner Executive Editor Andrew Jackson said: “Movember is a great cause and has really caught on in the last couple of years.

“You can’t fail to have noticed the number of men sporting moustaches on the streets of our town.

“We’re looking for as many people to send us their pictures as possible.

“It’ll make a great gallery of pictures in your paper but we’re also excited about being able to give someone a cheque for £100 for their charity.”

He added: “We’ve had some entries already via people we’ve contacted on the Examiner’s Twitter account (@examiner) but we know when it goes in the paper lots of people will see it and we want family and friends to encourage people growing their ’tache to fill out our short form and submit their picture at www.examiner.co.uk/Movember

“You never know, it could be your moustache that wins the £100!”
