Moustaches in Memory of Fallen Friend

Moustaches in Memory of Fallen Friend

Accountancy practice Saul Fairholm is raising money this Movember for the Lincoln Rural Support Network.

Led by Associate Director Chris Whyles, a team of eight from the Lincoln-based Chartered Accountants will be attempting to grow moustaches to raise awareness and funds for the LRSN.

Chris is part of a 200-strong group of Mark “Smiler” Richardson’s friends taking on the challenge in his memory. Mark passed in 2018 and after hearing of his story, many of the team at Saul Fairholm decided to join in support of the charity.

Chris said:

“We lost a great friend who suffered with mental health difficulties. He delighted in growing facial furniture for Movember and was an ardent supporter of the LRSN.”

“I am part of a large group of his male friends using Movember as a vehicle to raise funds for this worthwhile local charity, to honour his memory and to keep him alive in our thoughts. We are all planning to meet up for a walk round his farm at the end of November followed by a drink in the pub that he owned to raise a glass to him and compare facial ferrets!”

“I am touched and very thankful to my colleagues who have kindly stepped up to support our fundraising endeavours for LRSN via our own Saul Fairholm Just Giving page.”

To follow updates from the team you can head to their Facebook page or Twitter. If you would like to donate as a part of the Saul Fairholm Movember campaign, you can do so on their JustGiving account.
