MOVEMBER begins next week. This is when men are at liberty to grow their facial hair to show support for men’s health issues.

Darren Bode, the owner of the retro Bode’s Barber Shop in Hilton is offering men a chance to participate in the good cause and win. He wants local­ gentlemen to grow a moustache and beard and donate to a good cause.

Bode said: “Movember is an important event, it means that men get to support other men and create a discussion point around their beards and moustaches. The campaign has been going for a few years but it is always relevant.

“Breast cancer is a well known issue for women and all women and men support the cause - but men also have health issues that are less publicised.”

He said the Movember campaign page states that men are likely to die six years earlier than women due to various factors. One of the main factors is their reluctance to get medical help when something is wrong.

Bad health habits, stress and a lack of exercise can contribute to the development of prostate cancer, testicular cancer and heart disease and diabetes.

Bode is asking men to grow moustaches­ or beards throughout November­ and enter the competition.

To enter the competition you have to take a selfie at the beginning of November and then take a second one on the last day of November showing your hairy trophy. Post these photos on Bodes Barber Shop Facebook page.

Winners will be chosen in three categories - Best Beard, Manly Moustache and Sexy Stubble. The winner will get a bottle of premium whisky, a free beard or moustache shave and a free haircut and a certificate.
