Hair raising Challenge


Aaron Tunbridge our Associate Director has set himself a hair raising, or should that be hair losing, challenge. In our 90th year and as part of our corporate challenge events for Pendleside Hospice, Aaron has agreed to have his all his chest hair waxed once he’s raised £500.

The Corporate Challenge sees businesses competed to raise money for Pendleside Hospice after an initial £50 given to them by the hospice. Its then up to the companies involved to turn that into as much money as possible in a four month period (1st June-30th September). So far our staff members have taken part in numerous events including the Yorkshire 3 Peak Challenge, Burnley 10k and the Pendle Hill Trig point picture challenge, where we donate £1 for every picture taken at the trig point that is posted on our Facebook page. 

The hirsute Aaron said “After some of our team took part in the very physical challenges like the 3 Peaks and the Burnley 10k I thought it would be good to do something a little different. It seemed like a good idea at the time but after watching a few Youtube videos I’m beginning to have second thoughts!”

“My aim is to raise £500 and once this target amount has been reached, a public venue, date and time of the chest waxing will be confirmed. Hopefully we’ll film it and post it on the Petty Facebook page.”

A Just Giving page has been set up so if you’d like to see Aaron very publically get his chest hair ripped off you can go and donate here.

All of our 90th year celebrations and fund raising events can be seen on their social media pages.
