Local Solicitors Lay Down Their Razors to Grow a Mo for CancerCare

on Tuesday, 06 January 2015.

Three local solicitors found the perfect excuse not to shave for an entire month to participate in CancerCare’s ‘Grow a Mo campaign’ in aid of raising money for local cancer support services in North Lancashire and South Lakeland.

The campaign saw ‘Mo-sters’ of all ages – including staff local firm LHD Solicitors - take on the challenge to see who could grow the biggest, bushiest and craziest moustache throughout November whilst raising thousands of pounds for CancerCare.

George Halstead from LHD Solicitors said:LHD

"We were the only ones in our office brave enough to take up the challenge! But we are very proud that we managed to raise £1,000 between us - a great team effort!"

CancerCare asked local men to start November 1st with a clean shaven face and then raise sponsorship throughout the month. A special ‘Tash Bash’ event at Penny Street Bridge Hotel was held on November 29th for Mo-sters to come together to compare final tashes and celebrate their fundraising efforts. Prizes were also handed out for the best (and worst!) tashes.

 

Event organiser Penny Derby said:

“I’d like to say a huge thank you and well done to all the local guys who took part! Mo-ster’s managed to raise over £2,200 - what a fantastic effort! And It was great to see so many fabulous moustaches at our Tash Bash event. Over 25% of the people that access CancerCare’s services are male so all the money raised will support even more local men, their families and carers.”
