THERE WILL be more than just beer froth covering regulars' upper lips this month as a group of pub-goers in Claines grow moustaches in an effort to raise funds for a city hospice.
Keith Newby, general manager at The New Inn on the Ombersley Road, has managed to persuade 13 of his customers to take part in the Tash for Cash challenge.
The 38-year-old's aim is to raise more than £500 for St Richard's Hospice from their efforts, which will also see the group get their moustaches waxed off on Saturday, December 1.
And one of the group - Jake Tallet - will be gritting his teeth as he braves a full body wax.
The money will go into a bigger pot as Mr Newby has set his sights on raising more than £10,000 for the hospice through a series of events next year.
They include Mr Newby taking part in a half marathon in Tewkesbury in June.
He said: "I think places like St Richard's Hospice offer such a fantastic service. It is free as well, which I think is phenomenal and the nurses do a fantastic job there."
