Hair-raising efforts by Bristol Group

Where do the Bristol Group get their energy from?!  They’ve been steaming ahead with their fundraising events – they’re clearly a hardworking and efficient lot in the South West…

Jim Gorton, Bristol North Distribution Manager was sponsored to shave his head, raising £300, while Marc Blackford, Brislington Pack Line Manager, raised £176 from his colleagues by dying his hair pink!  Marc took his pink hair and his sponsorship form to a rugby match at the weekend and got his total up to £407 – what a hero.

Jennifer Brissett, Teleservices Operator, collected £150 from a sponsored silence (are her colleagues trying to tell her something?) and Louise Price, Teleservices Operator, revealed a second set of skills as a qualified nail technician and raised £30 by making the ladies’ (and gents’?) hands look lovely.

They also held a ‘Wear your PJs to Work Day’, which, judging from the photographs, some people took very seriously!  This raised over £90.

Melanie Eade, Warehouse Operator, very bravely volunteered to shave her head to raise money and she’s collected £500 in the process.  The first in a series of bacon roll sales kicked off on Friday too, raising £22.

Well done to the Bristol Group for their sterling efforts.  They are supporting 3 charities: Cancer Research UK, a local hospital’s baby ward and a local animal rescue centre.
