Thorntons: Facing the clippers in aid of Cancer Research

17th July 2017

Ten members of staff from MSI's Scottish law member Thorntons have bravely volunteered to have their heads shaved in the name of charity. Lynne Steel, department supervisor in personal injury at Thorntons, rallied her fellow colleagues to take part in the challenge on Friday 4 August 2017 in aid of Cancer Research.

The nine co-workers, based in Dundee, joining Lynne are John O’Neill, Stephen Brand, Vincent Chung, Stephen O’Hare, Colin Whyte, Ewan Ramsay, Heather McKenzie, Lee Corr and joint managing partner Craig Nicol. Thornton’s partner Stephen Brand has not only volunteered to have his head shaved but will also take the razor to his beard – for the first time in 45 years.

Lynne said: “I am so pleased that I’ve convinced nine colleagues to join me in this challenge. We are doing this for those who have lost their lives and those who have survived cancer within in the firm.

We have set up a Just Giving page for donations and would be very grateful of any support as we aim to reach our target of £1,500.

Thorntons will also host a bake off on Thursday 27 July and a dress down day on the Friday 4 August to raise additional funds for Cancer Research. Sarah Johnston, Local Fundraising Manager at Cancer Research UK, said: “Cancer Research UK has made enormous progress in the fight against cancer and has set ambitious plans and aspirations for the future.

However, progress is only made possible thanks to people fundraising, without whom we would not be able to fund outstanding scientists, doctors and nurses. I’d like to wish the Thorntons team all the best with their head shave and look forward to seeing the photos!
