Two colleagues from ABP Ipswich’s Engineering team, Mark Smith and James Drury, shaved their heads to raise £1,500 for Macmillan Cancer Support, as part of the charity’s “Brave the Shave” challenge.

The exercise, which took place in Ipswich’s historic Old Customs House, saw ABP’s Dave Coleman, another member of the Engineering team, assume the role of hairdresser. By participating in the “Brave the Shave” campaign, they joined more than 11,000 others who parted with their hair to raise over 3 million pounds for people living with cancer in 2017.

Paul Ager, ABP Divisional Port Manager East Coast, said: “At ABP we are committed to supporting the communities surrounding our ports, whether it is through environmental initiatives to clean up local beaches, such as our Tidy Friday campaign or by raising funds for charities.

“We are proud that our colleagues volunteered to take part in this challenge and that they were able to raise a significant amount for a worthy cause.”
