Moustache growing aids Sidmouth cancer charity

Honiton ambulance team grow moustaches and raise �500 for Sidmouth Living With Cancer

AMBULANCE men at Honiton have raised �500 for Sidmouth Living With Cancer Support Group – by growing moustaches in November.

Bill and Evelyn Lankester received a cheque from the crew recently, which will go towards the running of the group’s minibus, bought with money raised over a year, thanks to backing from the Sidmouth Herald’s Campaign 2010.

The ambulance team will be the charity’s first month’s sponsors for the minibus in 2012.

“As soon as they heard our plans to start up a sponsor scheme they wanted to be first,” said Bill.

“I have already got another organisation who is giving us �500 to sponsor a month and I have individuals wanting to take out standing orders to give us so much each month to sponsor the minibus.”
