Movember: the Cerne Abbas giant sports a ‘tache

The Cerne Abbas Giant sports a 'tache for Movember

The Cerne Abbas Giant sports a ‘tache for Movember




The Cerne Abbas Giant made Dorset proud today, by sporting a fabulous moustache in support of Movember.

The Giant’s grass moustache (grown by British Seed Houses) is, at 36′ by 9′, big enough and bushy enough to make even Tom Selleck green with envy.

The chalk Giant has joined the ranks of those sporting a ‘tache for Movember in support of health programmes that combat prostate and testicular cancer (and mental health challenges).


It seems an inspired pairing: the priapic Giant
(who says size doesn’t matter? Ed.) and the Movember charity, which aims to make an ‘everlasting impact on the face of men’s health’ through its support for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. 

The Giant already has a reputation for virility, with folklore holding that infertile couples making love on its huge appendage will conceive within two years (that is, if the guy isn’t too intimidated to be able to perform…).

The National Trust showed its funny and compassionate side by giving permission for the grass moustache to be added to the chalk giant for a day.
