London, England (PRWEB UK) 2 December 2012
FiscalReps (http://www.fiscalreps.com/), the market leader in VAT and international Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) services, have used their 7th Annual Indirect Tax Forum to raise essential funds for Prostate Cancer UK (http://prostatecanceruk.org/).
Team-members at FiscalReps (http://www.flickr.com/photos/8020communications/8232951776/in/set-72157630984321716/) have spent this month cultivating a wealth of moustaches as part of Movember, the annual event dedicated to changing the face of men’s health.
Every November, Movember is responsible for the growing of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world, in aid of raising awareness of men’s health and providing vital funds for prostate cancer and testicular cancer charities in particular.
FiscalReps decided to make the most of the fact that their annual Forum occurred in November by encouraging all attendees to have their photograph taken with a novelty moustache. The organisation is donating £5 to Prostate Cancer UK for each of the photographs taken.
Mike Stalley, Founder and Chief Executive of FiscalReps, is one of the six FiscalReps team-members who have chosen to grow a moustache as part of the Movember movement.
Stalley says: “I’m very proud that, although FiscalReps had a target of £500, we have already raised the grand sum of £745, via JustGiving and photos of people with novelty moustaches. This is all destined for Prostate Cancer UK, which fights to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life.”
“Each of the FiscalReps participants who decided to be part of Movember kicked off on 1st November with a clean-shaven face. Over the month, we have all grown and groomed a moustache and, in so doing, have not only raised awareness of men's health issues but we have managed to bring in much needed funds for a fantastic UK charity.”
