Team Tash leader at Cambridge Online Marc Johnston remarked on the fund raising drive: “This is the second year Cambridge Online has taken part in Movember and our numbers have swelled from last year, encouraged by the fact that the company agreed to top up all the money we raised by a further 50 per cent. So raising over £1,000 was a major milestone and the resulting tashes are a wonder to behold.”
Team Tash were prepared to go to any lengths to raise funds. They even donned ponchos and Mexican hats for one fund-raising drive around the office.
“We were greeted with some odd looks on our way to work and customer meetings. It is not every day that you see a dozen every day guys looking like they just walked off the set of Easy Rider,” added Marc Johnston.
David Crabb, managing director, Cambridge Online, added:
“We encourage these sorts of initiatives by our staff and back them with corporate funding because they all add to the positive atmosphere at work while simultaneously raising much-needed funds for worthy charities.”

Movember is one of several fund raising initiatives by Cambridge Online staff that the company supports.
