We recently held a head shaving fundraiser for the MIND charity in our Manufacturing Plant. Matthew, who is an apprentice at Roman, has had his head shaved in front of all his colleagues in the manufacturing plant at Roman.
In September 2017, Matthew started his Engineering Apprenticeship at Roman in conjunction with South West Durham College.
Matthew decided to raise money for the MIND charity as he has family members who have been affected by mental illnesses. Matthew managed to raise nearly £400 for the charity, which will help MIND to provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem.
“I have always wanted to do something to raise awareness and funds for MIND charity as I have close family who have been affected by mental illness. Everyone knows how much I love my hair, so I decided to get it all shaved off to see how much money I could raise”, Matthew commented.
