A Bellshill’s man’s facial hair has been helping to raise funds for research into prostate cancer.

Gilbert Higgins previously worked at Tesco Distribution Centre for eight years during which time each of the men working there paid £20 to take part in Prostate Cancer UK’s Movember campaign.

When Gilbert switched to working in Tesco’s Bellshill store he decided to carry on himself growing a fine moustache last month with colleagues and customers donating £270 to the cause.

In addition Gilbert is a member of the Magic Roundabout Social Club who have offered to double the amount he raised.

Gilbert said: “Now I’m at the store I decided I would carry on with Movember myself to help the cause and thank everyone for their support.”
