Sidmouth sprouts moustaches for prostate cancer charity
Hotel staff in Sidmouth grow moustaches in Movember charity event
BOSSES and staff at Sidmouth hotels run by the Seward family are growing moustaches.
They are taking part in Movember, a charity event running throughout the month, to raise money for The Prostate Cancer Charity.
“It is very popular within the rugby community and is something quirky and different to do for fundraising,” said Tom, duty manager for Dukes, Hotel Elizabeth and the Kingswood and Devoran Hotel.
There is friendly rivalry between Tom, 22, and his father Mark, who is also trying to raise awareness of the charity by growing a moustache.

“All the staff are also donating a small amount of their tips from November for this, so it is truly a great team effort,” said Tom.
