Students in Kingsbury showed the many personalities a moustache can bring while raising vital funds for charity.
Staff and pupils from Kingsbury High School, sported various styles of moustache, during a marathon chess session at the school in Princes Avenue.
The event last week raised more than �200 towards men’s health issues including prostate and testicular cancer.
Amrit Minhas, a 14-year-old student at the school said: “Chess Club runs every week. This week, Chess Club was combined with the Movember fundraiser, to raise awareness for men’s health.
“It was great fun. I was crowned Miss Movember because I wore my moustache throughout the whole day.”
A total of �233.55 was raised throughout the course of the traditional Movember fundraising, which encourages people to grow extravagant moustaches throughout November to raise money for charity.
