Go Canberra!

We were delighted to be able to help the Cancer Council in the ACT to reach for the stars (or rather, the clippers!) at their recent Guiness World Record attempt. They were going for the world record for the number of heads shaved at the same time as part of the Relay for Life fundraiser.

It was a last minute idea by the Cancer Council but they had the right mobile number.  A cheque was written. 200 electric clippers were purchased and both the Cancer Council and Aspen Medical swung into action to make it happen.

They were originally going for 100 heads shaved but found out that the record had only just been broken in the home of Guinness itself, Dublin. The new target was in excess of 170.

Aspen Medical Ambassador, Brumbies and Wallabies legend Clyde Rathbone, volunteered to raise the profile of the event my being a shaver on the day. The event took place on March 29 and by all accounts the record was broken!  It won't be official fir a couple of weeks but fingers-crossed.

We were delighted to be part of a great Canberra event for a great cause!
