Channel loses locks for leukaemia

Raises over $67,000 combined for World's Greatest Shave.

By Allie Coyne on Mar 19, 2012
More than ten Dimension Dataians volunteered in the World's Greatest Shave this year, for both cuts and colour. The company held its event at its Sydney office in The Rocks.
Dimension Data's fundraising target was $750. It reached $3038 on the day.
Brennan IT managing director Dave Stevens volunteered his head for the cause. The company raised $28,000 in total for the Leukaemia Foundation.
"I’m looking forward to getting out and about in the city, around home and with clients, and explaining why my hair has suddenly left me. A great way to spread the word about a great cause," Stevens said.
Brennan IT CFO Wayne De Nysschen accompanied Stevens.
Representatives from NewLease and Dicker Data, as the company's highest Greatest Shave donors, were on hand to assist.
Matthew Tanks was one of two Dick Smith workers who took the plunge and lost (most of) his hair for the charity. The company held the event at its support office in Chullora.
After his new mohawk was complete, Tanks stepped in to help out fellow staffer Kate Weinhart free her head of hair.
Co-worker David Refaat took over from Tanks to neaten up Weinhart's new do. The company's support office managed to raise $1,752 for the Leukaemia Foundation.
Datacom Qld business manager Kurt Nasarenko MC'd his company's event and also put his hair up for donation. The company's Qld arm has so far raised around $720 for the foundation.

Telstra and HP also participated in this year's World's Greatest Shave, between them raising almost $34,000.
