Two employees at Hixon-based heating and plumbing manufacturer Inta braved the shave and had their hair cut off to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support today (Friday 25th August).
Raising just over £600 - and still counting - Sales Administrator Emma Domanski and Warehouse Operative Ian Squires took to the hairdresser’s chair to have their heads shaved live on the firm’s Facebook page.
The colleagues donated their hair to the Little Princess Trust, which provides real hair wigs to children suffering from hair loss.
Emma, whose initial fundraising goal was just £250, said: “It’s fantastic to have smashed our target. A lot of people close to me have been affected by cancer, and seeing the effects of my mum losing a close friend of over 30 years, and having friends still battling the disease, really brings it home.
“Macmillan is a charity that’s close to my heart and I’m a little bit nuts, which definitely helps when shaving off all your hair. I’ve got a few wigs and novelty hats, none of which are work appropriate, so I’m just going to embrace it. It’s something to be proud of.”
Emma is also the driving force behind the firm’s other charity events, with her organising awareness days such as Wear it Pink and Children in Need.
Inta would like to thank NVS Studios in Stafford for carrying out the shave.
