SELKIRK Rugby Club players undertook a different type of training last November – training their moustaches and beards into a range of inventive styles as part of the worldwide Movember campaign which aims to raise awareness of men’s health issues.

The two players who raised most money from sponsors were Calvin Henderson and Darren Clapperton, so it was only fitting that the pair jointly presented a cheque for £765.50 to Prostate Cancer UK’s support group development manager Ann McEwan last week.

The handover took place in the Borders General Hospital’s Chaplaincy Centre where, on the first Wednesday of every month, the Borders Prostate Cancer Support Group holds a meeting for members and supporters.

“This is the second time Selkirk’s players and officials have taken part in the Movember campaign,” said Selkirk skipper Gavin Craig. “As well as being fun to do, it’s also very satisfying that everybody’s efforts can help the fight against prostate cancer.”
