This 12 year old's very touching Movember tribute to his grandfather

(3 ratings)
 William Heath Movember
Twelve-year-old William Heath lost his much-loved papa to cancer in February this year, and to pay tribute he wanted to help raise money for Movember.

Yet although he's not quite old enough to grow a moustache, the inspirational 12 year old has made the best fund raising effort for men's cancer charities we've seen so far.

As William wasn't able to stretch to a full moustache he and his mother Clare came up with a fun and inventive way to still get involved. William is dressing up for each morning in November as a different character who has sported a famous moustache - and he's not doing things by halves either. See all of William's costumes so far below...

November marks the month of ‘Movember' with thousands of men joining in the 30-day charity event to raise funds for prostate and testicular cancer as well as mental health. For the month of November those taking part have to grow a moustache in exchange for donations from friends and family.

William has already raised nearly £14,000 and there's still a way to go yet. If you'd like to donate to his fundraising effort then you can find his Movember page, here.

We bet his mum Clare couldn't be more proud and we think it's a lovely tribute to a granddad who was obviously very much loved.
