Inspiring Business by Sharing Success


Kind hearted staff at Leicestershire-based David Wilson Homes East Midlands have ‘braved the shave’ for Macmillan Cancer Support by shaving off their hair.


DWEM - (L to R) Kenny and Asa before the shave


Land Director Asa Chittock and Sales Manager Kenny Lattimore, who are both based at the developer’s head office in Bardon, had their hair shaved off in front of an audience of colleagues at a staff barbeque. 

Between them they have managed to raise an impressive £1,301, which will now be donated to Macmillan and used to support people living with cancer.

Asa said:

“I was delighted to take part in Macmillan’s Brave the Shave campaign and it’s been great to have such fantastic support from my colleagues at David Wilson Homes. I’d like to thank them for their kind donations.”

Kenny, who lost his mother to cancer two years ago, added:

“Macmillan is a hugely worthy cause and I was really pleased to be able to do my bit for charity and get involved with the big shave.”

John Reddington, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said:

“We are very proud of our staff members for taking on this challenge for a very worthy cause.

“It is fantastic to hear that the team exceeded their fundraising target and I’m sure the donations will be greatly appreciated by Macmillan.”

David Wilson Homes also plans to support the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 29th September by hosting events across its developments in Leicestershire.
