PUNTERS at a Honley pub have raised more than £3,100 after taking part in Movember.
The team at the Foresters rallied punters to take part in the annual moustache-growing fundraiser to raise awareness of prostate cancer.
And they raised a staggering £3,145 for the Movember campaign.
Stewart McVey, landlord of the Foresters on Bradshaw Road, said: “There were about 20 of us who took part – it’s a great way of raising the profile of prostate cancer.
“My dad, Dave, had prostate cancer and has now fully recovered and he even took part too.
“There was a lot of camaraderie, good humour and banter in the pub and we ran competitions for the top moustaches.
“But the key thing was to get people talking about prostate cancer and raise some money for it.
“I can’t believe how much we raised. I thought everyone would get £20 or £30 but we’ve now raised £3,146. It’s just brilliant and I’d thank everyone who took part and sponsored us.”
MP Jason McCartney, who also grew a top ‘tache, popped in for a pint to congratulate the pub’s team and customers for their charitable efforts.
The pub’s fundraising efforts this year have included a Pink Party for breast cancer, events for Help for Heroes and events to mark the Queen’s Jubilee too.
