Advantia Member Braves The Shave!

Write ON (office supplies) ltd based in Nottingham is a long-standing member of dealer group Advantia and Write ON’s MD Paul Hudson has been compelled to Brave The Shave to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, here’s why!

Paul and the team at Write ON have, over the years, lost loved ones to cancer and Paul himself was diagnosed with melanoma a few years ago so raising money for Macmillan and Maggies, whom they have supported in the past, are high on Write ON’s radar.  “We’ve all seen the Macmillan adverts on TV for their ‘Brave The Shave’ campaign, but when I saw young children, women and other men (all with lots more hair than me!) on Twitter and Facebook who had shaved, I thought this is such a sacrifice for them.”  Said Paul Hudson, “So I thought if these people can do this huge thing, for me to do it is a no-brainer.”

Paul promptly set up a Brave The Shave page and got the staff at Write ON to shave his head with the hair trimmer set to a 'number 1'. After a couple of comments that the hair was still 'a bit too long' and the beard hadn't been touched he got home and shaved his head with no guard and took the beard off as well! 

Paul said he remembered getting his diagnosis. When he got his bad news he was lucky because he had family and friends around to help.  But, imagine if you’ve got no-one.  That’s when organisations like Macmillan really come into their own.  They do a fantastic job of supporting the patient and their carers. They have benefits advisers to give advice on what you can claim so you can pay your bills, they have support centres and of course Macmillan nurses that provide support from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond, not just for the person affected by cancer, but their whole family.
