Face off: The Movember shave

The minute amount of facial year on the floor after the Movember shave-off at the Commercial Hotel in Stratford on Friday, might not have looked like much, but it represented the big hearts of Don Oakes, Mike Oien and Pete Littlewood who raised funds and awareness about prostate cancer through giving up their mos and beard.

Mike (57) has had his beard since age 19 and says he will keep the new look for a while to show his daughter Tenielle (26) who is visiting from Australia and who has never seen her dad clean shaven.

Don has had his moustache for about 44 years, while Pete grew a mo especially to have it shaven off on the night. Together they raised $737, supported by Dads & Lads' Rebecca Bruce (left) and Amii Drake.
