Andy shaves his hair for the British Heart Foundation!

On Friday 7th August, our Operations Manager of the Rail Team, Andy Ibrahimi shaved his entire head of hair off to raise money for the British Heart Foundation! 

The UK's number one charity, the British Heart Foundation funds research, education, care and awareness campaigns aimed to help prevent disease.

Known for his slick back, Grease-like locks, Andy says  "According to the NHS website, Coronary Heart Disease alone is responsible for more than 73,000 deaths in the UK each year! Statistics like that make you realise that there's a really high chance it could affect not only somebody you know, but maybe even yourself. This is why it's so important to raise funding for research of such conditions as well as educating people of the risks that attribute to such illnesses!"

The British Heart foundation seek to investigate many different heart conditions including Coronary Heart Disease, and every penny helps toward finding treatment and cures and Andy managed to raise a whopping £550 for the charity!

Well done!!! (and lets hope it grows back soon!)
