Thanks to some incredible generosity by IR readers, advertisers and supporters, your Internet Retailing team have braved (if that's the word?) embarrassment and taunts throughout November, growing (or should I say "growing"?) moustaches to raise money to combat prostate cancer.
The month of November has been renamed 'Movember' as men - singly or in teams - start clean-shaven on 1 November and then attempt to grow, maintain and carry off a moustache for the whole month.
As you can see from the 'mount tashmore' banner, we had varying levels of success, but overall we managed to raise nearly £5,000.
Actually, we were £43 short of our target, so if you fancy pushing us over the edge you can donate as well as seeing pictures of the team in their various levels of tashdom here:
Thanks again to all who supported, and also to those who mailed supportive notes while giving to other teams - the words soothed the embarrassment signficantly.
You can see the money raised here:
and the IR team finished 20th in the UK for teams of under 10 - thanks again for the support.
There were some 112,000 participants in the UK (hence the large number of emails asking for your support!) and nearly 450,000 globally. The UK has to date raised nearly £8m for this important cause.
Full information on the funds raised and the use of proceeds is available here:
Once again, we thank you.
Now, time to grow the beard again!
