Charles Dagnall and Ed Stagg have been proudly showing off their moustaches
Two presenters at BBC Leicester have been participating in 'Movember', a month-long fundraising event that involves growing facial hair.
During November men across the globe grow moustaches to raise money for and highlight men's health charities.
Funds raised in the United Kingdom benefit The Prostate Cancer Charity.
Ed Stagg and Charles Dagnall started the month clean shaven, and went on to lovingly grow and groom their striking new facial features.
Ed believes it is in the nature of being male to be "a bit silly", and it is even better if there is also a deeper purpose behind it.
"When you see pictures of gentlemen who've preened great swathes of beard back when they were the ultimate fashion accessory - there's always a part of you that wants to try to grow it!
"This has a really serious side though and any attention we can draw to prostate cancer and it's terrible effects has got to be good.
"Men are awful at going to doctors sometimes; I'm no different. The message here is simple - go and get checked out!"
Turning about face
David Jackson-Grant from Saddington, Leicestershire took an alternative path this Movember.
Men across the world have been growing facial hair for Movember 2010
He has sported a striking moustache for the past 42 years, "It's rather strange because it hangs down at either side below my chin, it's quite large and 'walrus-y' on the top."
So rather than growing facial hair, he decided it would make more of an impact if he were to shave it off.
David was inspired to get involved in fundraising after a close friend was diagnosed with prostate cancer last year.
"A lot of the ladies have got it sorted out, they go off for their breast cancer checks, but we don't. We're a bit reticent to actually go and do anything."
