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.
