FACIAL hair circa 1974 made a comeback 2010 style at Pilton Community College today (Friday).

The Barnstaple secondary school held a "Tash for Cash" day to raise money for earthquake victims in Haiti, with staff and students paying a pound to sport a moustache in aid of the International Red Cross aid effort on the devastated Caribbean island.

While follically-challenged youngsters and female members of staff opted for stick-on and felt tip varieties, male teachers put on a fine display of well-groomed whiskers in support of the fund-raiser.

Even staff in the school canteen got involved, making special moustache-iced cookies for the occasion.
