What do police officers and letting agents have in common?

It sounds like the start of a bad joke, but both have been growing facial hair for the past month to raise money for charity.

Newham’s Borough Commander Rob Jones was among the officers growing moustaches for Movember.

He said: “I am delighted Newham Police have entered into the spirit of Movember, with such enthusiasm – men and women alike!”

Female officers joined in by wearing colourful fabric moustaches to help the force raise £1450.

Staff at David Daniels Property Services sported a range of different looks throughout the month.

The Stratford-based company raised £1000 with their efforts.

Movember supports world class men’s health programmes that combat prostate and testicular cancer as well as mental health challenges.
