Sunday 19th August, not a particularly exciting day for most of us, right? Whilst the majority of people were catching up on life’s thrilling tasks, like cleaning the oven or traipsing round endless isles doing the weekly food shop, AM1 founder Anthony Whinn was free falling from 14,000 feet. Yes, you read that right.
Anthony rounded up a crack team of daredevil thrill seekers to raise money and awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support, a cause which he holds close to his heart. Trained in the Macmillan Strength in Style Programme, Anthony makes sure that everyone?s needs a catered for at AM1, including those affected by cancer. He recognises that clients affected by cancer have specific hair care needs beyond the usual salon treatments, which is why he goes the extra mile to really get to know the individual so he can recommend the best approach to their hair care needs, whether that be wig fitting and personalisation, or style advice and cutting.
Part of Anthony’s team of volunteers was Peter Stubbs, CEO of 2am Media, who manage AM1’s beautiful website and advertising. He was only too happy to help out a valued client whilst supporting an amazing cause, and having experienced the effects of cancer first hand, Pete dedicated the dive to his Nana, who lost her battle with cancer in 2010.
Over 300,000 people are diagnosed with cancer each year. These people suffer the physical effects of the disease, but thousands more people such as friends and relatives, feel, see and deal with the emotional devastation that cancers brings. The support for the fantastic work that Macmillan do for the thousands of people who are effected by cancer will continue in early October as Anthony hosts his Macmillan Charity Evening at AM1. Keep an eye on the AM1 website and Facebook for the latest charity event news.
