The Advertiser and Express newsrooms will become a much hairier place this month as staff take part in Movember.
Advertiser reporters Paul Miles, Daniel Darlington, James Preston and Steve Scott will be joined by photographer Ian Longthorne in neglecting to shave their upper lips throughout November.
Completing the Hairy Hacks are Express reporters Nick Mayo and Philip Dewey.
As well as competing against each other to grow the greatest 'Mo', they will be raising funds for men's health charities.
Cookham reporter James said: "There was a little bit of peer pressure but it's great to get involved as it's a fantastic cause.
"I'm not the hairiest guy in the world so if I can grow anything recognisable as a moustache it'd be a bonus."
Slough reporter Nick said: "I wasn't that keen to grow a moustache but thought it was a great cause and it would be good to see what it looked like.
"My wife wasn't keen at all, she offered to pay me double not to do it and says it must go as soon as the clock strikes midnight on November 30."
