Moving ‘Movember’ fundraising for Stafford colleague…

Missing from the photo: Ryan Corden, Neil Scragg, John Beech.Stafford-based Deans Accountants has raised over £2,000 in support of a colleague, who is currently receiving assistance from Macmillan Cancer Support.

Some of the staff at Deans had taken part in Movember before, but with a colleague receiving support from Macmillan the 14-strong ‘Mo Bro’ team thought it fitting they receive the money generated by their array of moustache and beard styles instead.

Deans partner Jeremy Hodgkiss explains: “So many of us today seem to have an affinity with Macmillan Cancer Support and our clients, colleagues, business associates, family and friends have all made generous donations. Our fundraising has gone very well, considering our initial target was only £1,000, so we’re obviously delighted. However, the donation page will remain open for a while, so if anyone else wants to support us we’d be most grateful.”

Movember (the month formerly known as November) is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men’s health.
