Movember is back again for another year, which means it's time for Kiwi blokes to start growing works of moustache art on their upper lips!

To herald the return of the annual charity event, Movember held a launch at Australis House last Wednesday night.

Among the crowd was Movember ambassador Melodie Robinson and husband Marcus Wheelhouse. Sports broadcaster Robinson will be cheering on the lads, saying "I can't grow a moustache, obviously, so I'm leaving that to Marcus," who is happily stepping up for the cause.

Although it's a lot of fun the event has a serious message - helping raise money and awareness for men's health issues - specifically the Cancer Society and the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.
