Mop chop to raise funds for Children’s Hospital…

Submitted by on January 23, 2014 – 8:05 am |

Peter Green and Wilkes Team Post haircutA brave member of staff at Birmingham law firm The Wilkes Partnership put his hair in colleagues’ hands to raise money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

Having grown his hair for a year, Peter Green, part of the office services team at Wilkes, agreed to let his long locks go, provided his workmates donated at least £1,000 to charity.

After the company beat the target by more than £300, Peter’s colleague Tamara Chambers set to work at the recent Wilkes 2013 Christmas party, transforming his hairstyle into a short, neat crop.

Peter said: “It had been a year since my last haircut. So, after a challenge from a colleague at The Wilkes Partnership, I decided that I would get rid of my wild hair, but only for charity. Birmingham Children’s Hospital provides an amazing service, and it’s through the donations of staff at Wilkes that we’ve been able to surpass expectations and raise nearly a third more than the original target, giving over £1,300 to this lifesaving charity.”
