Southampton company VR Group go bald in support of brain tumour patient and employee Bob.
brainstrust patient Bobby (right) started to lose his hair due to his brain tumour treatment, fellow VR Group employee Jim decided that if Bob was going bald then so would he.
Word spread, and soon most of the company were going bald for Bob, and to raise funds for brainstrust and our work to support people with a brain tumour.
Katie, Bobby’s sister and Sales Manager at VR Group says, “They all did a fantastic job. Thank you boys (and ladies!) –you all look lovely! We finally got Bob down to the yard, keeping him away for the day was hard enough but trying to get him back proved harder by far. He walked into a room of bald men who just wanted to show their support. Bob was surprised but soon remembered that some of the guys should have been working that morning…(typical Bob) –after he had checked they had been… everyone had some well deserved sandwiches and doughnuts. We started to add up the donations, a calculator was needed and I think everyone was amazed by the final figure on the day, what a fantastic achievement –well done boys!”
And us? We’re delighted to have such a fab company supporting us. This isn’t the last we’re going to see of the chaps at VR Group – they’ve a huge amount planned this year to help us, and the brain tumour patients that we work with. As soon as we know more about their next event we’ll make sure to pop the info up here. Thank you guys, and Bob, keep fighting!
