Workers pay more than lip service to charity.

MOVE over Movember - staff at a Meltham company have their own take on the November fundraiser.

Employees at washroom products firm Disposables UK carried out their own version of the facial hair growing crusade during the month of November in memory of late company chairman Trevor Storer.

The campaign, called Tash For Trev, will raise money for Kirkwood Hospice. Tash For Trev challenged 15 male volunteers to grow a moustache for the 30 days of November while getting people to donate towards Kirkwood Hospice. Trevor sadly passed away on November 5, 2010, aged 56. He raised a lot of money for the hospice through charity work.

The hospice at Dalton supported Trevor with palliative care as well as offering support to the family.

Diane Storer, Trevor's widow and chairman of Meltham-based Disposables UK, said: "I am so proud of all involved in the Tash for Trev campaign in memory of my husband and I know Trevor would be too.

"They have raised money for an amazing charity who, like many families in Kirklees, helped us as a family during Trevor's illness and for that, we are forever grateful."

The 'tache growers, who include Trevor's son Paul, expect to raise more than PS1,000 with their efforts.
