Gallagher leader goes from silver to blond for a good cause

Gallagher’s Newcastle based area director has come up with a unique way to raise funds for drought-impacted farming communities – dying his silver hair blond.

To raise $1,000 for Buy a Bale during one of the worst droughts in living memory, Mark Bramley accepted colleagues’ requests to dye his hair brown – only instead of the mahogany brown he was gunning for, his hair went champagne blond due to the lightness of his hair.  

Everyone was pleased enough with the result, however, especially after Bramley temporarily sported a spray-on pink look to thank supporters.

The hair-dying raised $1,150 in total, with donations still being accepted.

“I've been getting all sorts of remarks from colleagues – not all of them complimentary," Bramley said. "But I'm happy to do this for such a good cause and thanks go to everyone who contributed funds."
