Colour in Keith!

Published:  23 February, 2016

RGB driver Keith Thomas raised £365 for charity by asking customers to donate and choose what colour he should dye his hair.

Mr Thomas, a member of RGB Building Supplies' Exeter team, invited customers over the past few weeks to make a donation to his 'Colour in Keith' appeal and vote on what colour, or pattern, his hair should become. All money donated was given to The Exeter Foundation

On 19 February, his hair was then dyed in the Exeter branch, using colour kindly donated by LaRicheLtd.

Mr Thomas commented: "A huge thank you to all our customers who made a donation, and to RGB who matched the amount that was raised. RGB is a big supporter of the Exeter Foundation and has pledged to raise over £1,500 before July, so I'm delighted to have got our fundraising off to a great start, even if it does mean I'll look a bit outrageous for a few weeks!"

Donations can still be made to the Colour in Keith appeal by visiting www.virginmoneygiving.com/colourinkeith.
