A team of ‘cut throat’ reporters from the Fife Free Press group have decided to take on the Movember challenge.
Mo Bros Paul Cardwell (28), Paul McCabe (44) and Neil Henderson (45), collectively calling themselves ‘The Handlebar Hacks’ have hung up their razors for the month in a bid, like most participants, to raise awareness of the charity as well as have a few laughs along the way.
Paul Cardwell, a regular beard grower, has the most facial hair experience of the trio but fears his ginger whiskers will make him look like effervescent Celebrity Juice presenter Keith Lemon.
Paul McCabe fancies himself as a bit of a musician but his colleagues all think his wispy upper lip effort so far resembles something his most hated man in music Justin Bieber would grow rather than the lip forest of his hero Motorhead frontman Lemmy.
Neil on the other hand is quite taken with his own efforts and is wearing it with the confidence of Johnny Depp but his wife says he will be a Lone Ranger if he doesn’t get rid of it on December 1.
The Handlebar Hacks are making a blog of their efforts with daily photographs and the occasional video. You can follow their progress online at www.fifetoday.co.uk or sponsor them at http://moteam.co/handlebar-hacks
