Movember memories

Movember is drawing to a close, and thousands of men in New Zealand and around the world are sporting moustaches for a good cause.  In New Zealand, the funds raised are being used for research, advocacy and survivor support around men’s cancer and mental health.  Here’s a small selection of moustachioed men, drawn from our photograph collection to inspire you in Movember’s final days … and remember, these moustaches are the culmination of years of effort!
