Mike Gilpin, project manager for Severn Trent, said: “I’ve had mates who have had testicular cancer and I’ve seen them go though it, so it’s nice to be able to do something positive about. The ‘tache is a great conversation starter to raising awareness.”

The money raised will go to the Movember Foundation, which is a global organisation committed to changing men’s health. Since 2003, Movember has raised over £345 million and funded more than 800 programmes worldwide.
