Pupils from St Bonaventure's sell moustaches


Fake facial hair helped students at St Bonaventure's to raise money for the Philippines disaster fund.

The school’s CAFOD group were inspired to sell false moustaches in a variety of colours and styles after several teachers grew real ones for Movember.

Some of the boys even designed their own, and the effort raised more than £125 for the appeal.

Joanne McKeever, a teacher at the Boleyn Road school, organised the day.

She said: “Many teachers and other staff joined in with some amazing moustaches.

“Everyone agreed it was a novel, if not itchy, way to raise funds for such a worthwhile cause that was close to all our hearts.”
