This month, Writtle University College's campus is home to some very impressive moustaches.

Six members of Writtle University College's Men's Rugby Team are taking part in Movember, an annual charity campaign that raises awareness of men's health issues.

The six players will raise funds by growing 'tashes and have also planned a fundraising pub golf tournament for Wednesday 16th November, starting at the University College's campus 'baa'.

Since its launch in 2003, Movember has donated funds to more than 1,250 men's health projects around the world, including organisations dedicated to mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

Men's Rugby Captain Adam Woodgate said: "I'm raising funds and awareness this Movember for all the dads, brothers, sons and mates in our lives. Please help us to support men's health."
