Tacheback was the name of a UK charitable event where each November, thousands of men grow a sponsored moustache for that month to raise money for the Everyman Campaign, a UK male cancer research charity which funds research in and awareness of male prostate and testicular cancers.
The name is a portmanteau word, being a mix of CashBack and Tache (Moustache).
The event culminates with a “Tashon Parade” in London of some of its annual sponsored mustachioed participants. The event began in 2003 and is regularly attended by celebrities such as comedian Charlie Higson, satirist writer Michael "Atters" Attree, presenter Sarah Champion and numerous cover models, beauty queens, popular singers and footballers such as Craig Easton.
