Magnificient Mos were grown by men across Boston as part of a fundraising campaign to raise support and awareness for male cancer charities.

Pupils paid to watch the painful end to Boston Grammar School teacher David Johnson’s efforts for Movember – one of many people to grow a charity ‘tache.

The English teacher’s impressive ‘mo’ came to an end at the hands of year 10 pupil Thomas Vamplew.

Fellow pupils paid an entrance fee of 50p to watch their teacher’s torture, bringing to end his fundraising efforts for Prostate Cancer UK and the Institute of Cancer Research.

Thomas said he was delighted with his ‘mo-tastic’ efforts at the event, which was organised with help from Ruth Johnson and Daniel Brown.

Mr Johnson said: “I, like a million other men, have grown the moustache to raise awareness about cancers that afflict mostly men.

“As men, we don’t always take our health seriously and it is important to raise awareness among the boys at Boston Grammar School about prostate and testicular cancer.

“This is one of many charitable events held by the school and staff at the Boston Grammar School.”

His feat was matched by the male teachers at Kirton Primary School, who also grew their facial hair for a good cause.

A team from the Carpenters Arms – Gary Fitzsimmons, Christopher Moore, Lee Ford, Ian Satchwell, Grant Marshall and Liam South – raised almost £1,000 before having their tache’s trimmed by Peter Norton from Fonz’s Barber Shop.

The shop, in Bridge Street in Boston, raised £280 with their own efforts too.

Workers at Royal Mail in Boston also joined the good cause, and their £170 fundraising total is set to be doubled by their business.

Staff members at Boston Sausage chipped in with a £500 total raised by their meaty mos.
