Jason’s fundraising (pony) tale

Fundraising can be a great way of building team spirit and so when one of my team suggested a charity haircut as I was planning a change of image I agreed to the challenge. We agreed that half of the money would go to the charity that one of the team was running the marathon for and as I would be the star attraction, I got to choose the other. I selected Foothold as my family has strong links to engineering through the military and I know some of the staff.

On the day there was a long line of people with varying hairdressing skills and intent – in fact the whole office had a go and it definitely brought a lot of smiles to people working in a challenging NHS environment.

Aside from coming out of it looking more like Harry Potters potions master I can safely say to mis quote a certain haircare advert, “its because they’re worth it” and I would certainly say to others whatever way you want to fundraise, go out there and do it!
