MAGNIFICENT moustaches were on show as a theatre group set about raising money to help cancer research.
The male members of Stowmarket Operatic and Dramatic Society (SODS) threw away their razors to join the TacheBack initiative, which funds research at The Everyman Centre, Europe's first complex dedicated to investigating male cancer.
The campaign challenges men to emulate Magnum star Tom Selleck - credited by a new survey with sporting the most impressive moustache - to help raise £200,000 for vital research into testicular and prostate cancer.
Paul Hayward, spokesman for SODS, said the group had raised about £1,500.
“We enjoyed growing a 'tache and joining the ranks of real men who are not afraid to set themselves apart from the boys and let their facial follicles run free,” he said.
One member of the team, Peter Gunton, decided to go one step further, having his head shaved all except an area at the back left in the shape of a moustache.

SODS then held a group shave off at a hair salon in Bury St Edmunds, when the ladies of the society took the opportunity to learn how to have their hair in a 1930s style.
