DUNOON, UK, May 29, 2018 Two courageous Webhelp employees in Dunoon have braved the shave to help raise just under £1000 for The Mental Health Foundation.

During a hair-raising fundraising evening at Dunoon’s Kirn Bowling Club on Friday May 25, training advisor, Callum Goffin, volunteered to have his head completely shaved and colleague Shaun Smith, who is a customer advisor, took the brave step to undergo a full leg waxing.

Callum said: “I’m not going to lie I felt a fair bit of trepidation when I saw the clippers appear; however when you put it into context and look at what others go through who suffer from mental health issues, it felt like a small sacrifice to make for such an amazing cause”.

Shaun added:” I don’t know how on earth people can wax themselves regularly as part of a beauty routine; thankfully for me I’ve only had to do it once. My colleagues clearly liked seeing me suffer though as they dug deep and showed their support to help make it a brilliant night that raised lots of money.”

The fun continued late into the evening, with games taking place and a raffle, courtesy of prizes donated by generous local businesses.

Anton Manley, Chief Operating Officer at Webhelp UK, said: “it’s great to see the lengths that our people will go to for such a fantastic cause which is reflected in the amount raised for The Mental Health Foundation.

“Hats off especially to both Callum and Shaun for truly going above and beyond to help us reach our total; and to everyone else who helped support such an amazing evening”
