Linden Homes 'Tache' Force Boosts Cancer Charity Coffers
04 Dec 2012

IN a smooth move from Movember to December, Linden Homes fundraisers have added a respectable £600 to cancer charity coffers.

The ‘tache force’ of company directors signed up for the popular charity stunt at the start of last month, joining the growing Mo Bros movement raising money for research into prostate cancer.

Their total raised so far comes from sponsorship, collecting tins and a cake sale organised at the company’s head office in Peterborough.

Having completed the challenge, land director Mike Walker, technical director Barry Maynard, sales director Chris Roads, finance director Fraser Hopes, production director Brendan Blythe, commercial director Chris Harris, company solicitor Peter Carr and managing director Chris Bond are now minus their impressive moustaches!

The idea to ditch the razors for the month of November came from Chris Harris, who heads up the commercial department.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. Over 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer ever year and 250,000 men are currently living with the disease.

Chris said: “It’s a great cause and a bit of fun too. This is the kind of fundraising event that gets people talking and hopefully donating to the cause and we are delighted to say that we’ve raised around £500 – so thanks to everyone who supported us.”
