SWIMMING champ Josef Craig is gearing up for his next big charity challenge – growing a moustache!
The Paralympic and World champion has signed up to become a Mo Bro this November to raise money for Cancer Connections.
The 16-year-old, who was made a patron of the charity last year, will ditch the razors for a month and allow his ’tache to grow naturally.
In exchange for sporting the hairy look, Josef will be seeking sponsors.
With only weeks to go until the start of Movember, the charity based in Harton Lane, South Shields, is keen to find more men to join the teenage swimmer and help raise money for its work in supporting people diagnosed with cancer and their families.
Josef, of Swinbourne Terrace, Jarrow, has already made a start on growing his facial hair.
He said: “It’s just something I wanted to do for Cancer Connections as it is a charity close to my heart, and it’s the ideal time for me to do this, as it’s not going to have any impact on my swimming.”
