An Earls Barton schoolboy who lost his grandad to cancer is raising Movember money by posing as a different moustachioed celebrity every day this month.

William Heath, 12, lost his Pappa in February after a battle with pancreatic, testicular and prostate cancer.

He wanted to help raise awareness of male cancer with the Movember campaign but knew he stood little chance of growing an impressive mo himself.

Not to be put off, he decided to go to a local fancy dress shop and pick out all the costumes he could find that included a moustache.

He has been amusing visitors to his Mo Space website by posting a new photo each day of November and encouraging them to donate to charity.

His mum, Clare, said: “Even though he has no chance of growing a moustache, with the help of the local fancy dress shop William is able to post a new photo every day of a famous person who sports a moustache.

“So far he has done Biggles, Hercule Poirot, Keith Lemon, Ali G, Groucho Marx and Confucius.

“It is William’s aim that by posting daily pictures on social media that his campaign will amuse people and remind them to donate to the #Movember appeal – whose vision is to permanently change the face of men’s health.”

William’s “Mo Space” can be found here.

He has currently raised over £750.
