Expolink have a Close Shave at Contact Centre – Ben Slater faces a close shave after fundraising success at Chippenham based contact centre.
While six of his colleagues are looking forward to a date with their razor for the first time in a month, Expolink Sales Manager Ben Slater is facing a close shave for the first time in almost twenty years.
In an effort to encourage more of his colleagues to grow beards for last month’s Decembeard challenge, a national initiative to help beat bowel cancer, Ben also promised to shave off his own beard if he and his colleagues reached their fundraising target of £1,750. With more than £1,300 raised, Ben now faces the prospect of a bare-faced new year.
“At first it was just a throwaway comment to try and get people involved – I honestly didn’t expect us to raise so much money. But as the weeks have gone on, I’ve had to face up to the prospect of a beard-free future. I’m genuinely concerned that my nearest and dearest won’t even recognise me anymore!”
Expolink’s Managing Director, Dominic Mehta, who was part of the Expolink Decembeard team, added:
“At the same time as supporting a very worthy cause, we’ve had a great time watching each other’s beards develop over the past few weeks. In fact, a couple of the guys have decided to keep them permanently, but unfortunately for Ben it doesn’t look like he will be among them!”
