Mitsubishi dealership staff ‘brave the shave’ for charity

Time 11:07 am, August 22, 2016

STAFF at a Mitsubishi dealership in Swansea have ‘braved the shave’ and had their hair cut off as part of a charity’s national fundraiser.

Celtic Mitsubishi in Victoria Road, Gorseinon, took part in Macmillan Cancer Support’s Brave the Shave event, with four of the team getting a new look as the charity aims to get people standing proudly alongside men, women and children with cancer.

Managing director Tony Sciascia went under the clippers, along with senior service adviser Paul Harris, site co-ordinator Bryan Tasker and technician David Jones. So far, the team have raised more than £500.

Staff at the dealership also sold home-made cakes, and proceeds raised will fund charity nurses supporting families across the country who are battling cancer.

Sciascia said: ‘Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer, so we thought this was a great opportunity to have a bit of fun but also raise funds for a worthy cause.

‘We’re really grateful for everyone’s donations so far, which will help the charity continue its work helping families during a difficult time.’

The family-owned dealership employs 20 members of staff.
