We’re Braving the Shave for national cancer charity

Clarkson Evans employees are set to shave their heads in a bid to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Trust, a charity close to many hearts.

It’s just 19 days until the nation unites to lop off its luscious locks. Brave shavers will be standing proudly against men and women affected by cancer whilst raising money to support Macmillan Cancer Support in its fight against the disease.

Cancer affects all of us, whether it’s a direct diagnosis or someone we know, a story all too true for Clarkson Evans Quantity Surveyor Sam Mason who was diagnosed with throat cancer. The 27-year-old had to undergo extensive treatment and surgery but is now thankfully completely free of the disease.

“I am really touched that my colleagues felt inspired to get involved in Macmillan’s fundraising efforts, and I’d like to thank Quantity Surveyor Leigh Dangerfield for organising it. I jumped at the chance of getting involved – if everyone plays their part, men, women and children affected by this disease will feel supported and not isolated,” said Sam.

Sam will be joined by Jarrod du Val, Joe Wakeman, Dan Long, Luke Todd, Leigh Dangerfield, Carl Gough, Charlie Gellert and Alex Shirra, Dan Strange, Brian Johnston and Bradley Grainger in having their heads shaved.

They all have their own motivations for signing up to take part in the mass head shave on Friday August 14 but are united in the hope of raising a collective sum of £1,000.

With the help of their friends and colleagues £255 has already been pledged towards their target.
