Local burrito bar boojum is to support men's health month Movember by donating all the proceeds from a £3.50 burrito day on November 30.

The company is inviting male and female supporters to wear handy cut-out Mexican style moustaches into the restaurant to pick up their priced-down burritos with all proceeds going to the charity.

The annual, month-long, Movember phenomenon – which raises awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancers by encouraging people to grow moustaches - has been attracting more and more followers in Northern Ireland. boojum has been supporting the cause for three years.

John Blisard from boojum said: "Movember has been a charity that we have been involved with for quite some time, as we feel it is important to raise awareness of important issues such as prostate and other male cancers. It is great to see more people respond each year to what they are doing and we just hope to support that in some way. We have decided to use the cut out facial hair so that both moustache-challenged males and girls can get involved, it also adds a bit of fun to a pretty serious topic, so hopefully people will enjoy looking a bit silly with us!"

To take part, MoBros and MoSistas can visit to register for their moustache and then wear it into the restaurant (Botanic Avenue or Chichester Street, Belfast) on November 30.
