Dirty Dozen a bristly bunch

IT'S officially Movember, and that means this bunch of blokes will be banning razors from their upper lips for the rest of the month.

The group was created by the late Chris "Simmo" Simpson, who initially raised $10,700 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation when, after accepting a dare, he shaved off his well-established mo.

Last year he commissioned Simmo's Dirty Dozen, with 12 men growing moustaches in the month of November.

Following on with tradition, there are now 13 soon-to-be follicly free fellas - Simmo's Dirty Dozen - and they're already in fundraising mode.

Simmo passed away in January but the dare to let the lip hair be free has become something of a legacy.

On November 26, Simmo's Backyard BBQ is being held at C.ex Coffs from 5-8pm to raise money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

A $30 donation at the door will get you bubbles, beer and bangers, and a chance to see how well these men have risen to the mo challenge.

RSVP to Janice on 02 6656 8700.
