raises £12,500 for charity

The Organisers of the World Beard and Moustache Championships that was held in Brighton on Saturday September 1st 2007 are delighted to announce that the event raised £12,500, which will be split between our two charities, everyman (the men’s cancer charity) and The Rockinghorse Appeal (the Brighton children’s charity).

Over 250 competitors battled it out for world titles in 17 categories of beard and moustache styles with nearly 3000 spectators cheering them on – an unprecedented number for this biennial event.

A CHARITY has received an unlikely boost after a display of artistic facial hair.

The World Beard and Moustache Championships, held in September last year at the Brighton Centre, featured dozens of beard and moustache wearers.

The event was organised by the Handlebar Club, which raised more than £12,000 for charity.

Now renowned Brighton moustache wearer Michael "Atters" Atree, a member of the Handlebar Club, has presented a cheque for £6,250 to the Rockinghorse Appeal.

The appeal raises money to help sick children, including patients at the Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital in Brighton.

The rest of the cash was donated to the Everyman Male Cancer Campaign.
