Women in Diss don moustaches for Movember

Women in moustaches greeted customers at Specsavers in Diss last Friday as staff showed their support for Movember.

While the men at the branch in Mere Street grew moustaches, the female staff, not to be outdone, donned impressive taches of their own in support of the campaign, which aims to raise vital funds for, and awareness of, men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

Last Friday, the branch raised about £70 for the cause.

Optical assistant Chloe Booker-Smith said: “We’re mostly women who work here and, as women’s charities get quite a lot of support and publicity, we thought it would be nice to raise awareness of men’s health issues.”

She added: “We’d like to thank all our customers who kindly donated to our Movember collection.”
