Grow! A Tache for Cash
GENTLEMEN, start your
moustaches! It’s Tache for Cash, the time of year where men sprout
moustaches to help raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and
other men’s health issues which are a major part of services
provided at our hospitals.
Tache for Cash is being organised by the fundraising team at the
Royal Liverpool University Hospital and is open to all men. This is
a local charity raising funds for local treatments for local people!
All you have to do is register at the fundraising office with a
squeaky clean face and then let that lovely ‘tache’ loose
throughout the month of November. You can wax it, trim it, curl it
or just let it all hang out as nature intended.
Once registered men have 30 days to get friends, family and
colleagues to donate to the ‘tache’ growing efforts. A cash
prize will be awarded for the best moustache grown and a consolation
prize will be awarded for the worst attempt.
Angela McShane events and community fundraiser says:- “The
main aim is to raise as much cash as possible for prostate cancer
and men’s health issues which are a major part of services provided
at our hospitals. We have over 20 participants taking part including
men from various departments in our hospitals.”
For more information about this challenge contact the fundraising
team on:- 0151 706 3172 or visit our event page on
where all the weekly pictures will be uploaded throughout November
and see the competiveness emerge!
And who knows? Maybe the new looks will last more than just November
(although they probably won't…)
A CAMPAIGN to highlight the
benefits of using hackney cabs is being backed by the Mayor of
Liverpool. The campaign is aimed at reminding local people,
visitors to the city and tourists of the benefits of using hackney
cabs and will feature on posters, in bus shelters and on branded
Mayor Joe Anderson said;- “People should be aware of the
advantages of hackney cabs. Taxis and hackneys operate at times when
buses have stopped running. As one of the campaign slogans put it,
“Is there a better sight when you’ve had a big night out” than
seeing a taxi?
But, of course you don’t have to pre-book a black cab, you just flag
one down. Or you can use one of the ranks which are marshalled.
All the hackney carriage drivers are individually licensed having
undergone stringent tests. For visitors to the city and tourists the
drivers can be our best ambassadors; many of them have an
unrivalled knowledge of the city.
These taxis are one of our best assets and we should make the
greatest use of them. I am delighted to support this campaign.”
And Councillor Steve Munby, cabinet member for neighbourhoods,
said:- “All forms of public transport are valuable to the city
but this campaign is pointing out the benefits of hackney cabs which
can sometimes take for granted.”
Terry Stockton, spokesperson for Liverpool’s Hackney cabs said:-
“We are very pleased that the Mayor is backing this campaign It
draws attention to the benefits of black cabs and the vital services
they provide to the city of Liverpool.”
