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.
