Craig Burnett, Matthew O'Hear, Adrian Pedersen, Ed Campbell and Steven Heerkens had their heads shaved to a grade zero in front of a crowd of their colleagues in The Courtyard at Quadrant House in Sutton.
Ed Campbell decided to take part as he has a family member and two friends currently living with cancer:
"It’s a horrible thing to go through and many people don’t appreciate the stress and strain it puts on the person with cancer as well as the whole family. MacMillan offer support to people like my friends and family who are living with the very serious effects of cancer and they need events like this to provide funds for this.
Ed explained that the thought of shaving his head didn't really bother him too much, more what other people's perceptions would be: "The work I am currently involved in means meeting new people so first impressions and all that."
"I got a little nervous when it suddenly went from a grade 1 to a grade zero on the day! Watching Craig, Matt and Adrian being shaved and thinking “really! this is going to look ridiculous”. However the new look is slowly growing on me."
Adrian Pedersen sadly lost his Grandfather to cancer when he was nine and remembers his struggles first-hand, which made taking part an easy choice to make:
"Not everyone has a choice to keep their hair, especially if they get diagnosed with cancer, as we all know the Chemo is a harsh treatment that causes this.
"To me it's just hair that will grow back, but for people fighting this disease it comes with pain and suffering, along with often being judged and pitied and forced to stand out in a crowed that they want to be a part of.
