RGB staff member turns violet and raises £365 for charity

Published:  23 February, 2016

A member of RGB Building Supplies’ Exeter team has raised £365 for the Exeter Foundation by dyeing his hair a wonderful shade of violet.

For the past few weeks, RGB driver Keith Thomas has been inviting customers to make a donation to his Colour in Keith appeal and vote on what colour, or pattern, his hair became. Mr Thomas’ hair was then dyed in the Exeter branch on Friday 19 February with colour kindly donated by LaRiche.

Mr Thomas said: “I’d like to say 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.”
