UKFast CEO's Pledge to Match Movember Fundraising
Article date: Thu, 01 Nov 2012 14:23 GMT
CEO of cloud hosting specialist UKFast, Lawrence Jones, has revealed he will match funds raised by the UKFast team for the annual Movember campaign.
Each November sees men across the world growing moustaches for 30 days to raise awareness of men's health issues including prostate and testicular cancer.
UKFast takes part in Movember each year, with at least 15 team members joining in the face-fur fun.
Jones said: "UKFast supports many good causes and it's great if we can combine fundraising with a bit of fun in the office. Last year we raised almost £1000 and in true UKFast style we will be aiming to smash that this year."
The Movember campaign follows a number of recent charity initiatives from the UKFast team including The Manchester 10k, where the total fund raised by the speedy UKFasters taking part was again matched by Jones. Over £400 was collected on the recent Wear It Pink day for the Breast Cancer Campaign, with over 200 people taking part in fancy dress and bake sale.
Other charities supported over the past year include NSPCC, Alzheimer's Society and the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team.
