Accountants at South West-based Milsted Langdon have swapped tax for ‘taches to take part in this year’s Movember charity campaign.
The appeal encourages men across the UK to grow moustaches during the month of November to raise funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health.
A seven-strong team from Milsted Langdon, consisting of Simon Denton, Jonathan Langdon, Darren Takle, Phil Brunsdon, Andrew Covey and Steve Contreras from the firm’s Taunton office, and Matt Cole from the Bristol office, are hoping to raise as much money as possible for the cause.
The effort is part of Milsted Langdon’s 25th anniversary charity campaign, which aims to raise a total of £25,000 for a range of worthy causes throughout the year.
Simon Denton, a partner at the firm who is leading the Movember effort, said: “As a firm, we have always placed a great deal of emphasis on doing our bit for charity, but this year has seen us step up our efforts as part of our 25th anniversary campaign.
“We felt that Movember was the ideal way to raise valuable funds for a very worthy cause while also opening those of us taking part up to a certain level of ridicule in the process.
“We hope that as many people as possible will dig deep and sponsor us before the end of the month.”
