A WORCESTER chaplain is hoping to be bristling with pride at the end of this month as he attempts a hair-raising challenge for charity.

Reverend Dr David Southall, who is a chaplain at Worcestershire Royal Hospital, will be among thousands of people across the country growing a moustache as part of 'Movember'.

The 48-year-old is hoping to raise more than £500 for Prostate UK and the Institute of Cancer Research.

Dr Southall said: "It is such a fun and easy thing to do for charity.

"But it is not just about the money, it is about raising awareness as it will hopefully say to guys it is OK to get your health checked out.

"I just hope my patients won't be too freaked out by my moustache!"
