Ed Christopher: 'Men definitely need that extra push'

Hamilton Town Crier Ed Christopher is accustomed to making a spectacle of himself and when it comes to appearing on behalf of a charity, he is always game.

"I can give my time instead of money to help out," Mr Christopher said.

For the men's health awarenss cause of 'Movember', however, Mr Christopher is taking it further: losing his beloved moustache.

Tonight at 5.30 p.m., in the Lemon Tree Cafe, on Queen Street, he will shave it off publically to raise money for men's health.

Mr. Christopher said he's had his moustache "since I started to grow one. It looked good, so I kept it".

He believes men need to be reminded to get serious about their health this month, saying: "We're all guilty; we all think we're healthy, but men definitely need that extra push, especially for routine checkups. Men need to have it put in front of them to go regularly. I'm over 50 myself and I need to go more often. I go to the doctor every two years."

"My moustache is part of me, so it'll be something to shave it off. I do trim my moustache. It's easither close or it's bushy. Now it's coming off. I'll see what happens."

Check in at www.chc.bm to sponsor Mr Christopher or someone else taking part in Movember.
