raised by Josh Roberts in memory of Nigel Roberts
Photofab’s Assistant Quality Manager will be shaving his head for the Young Minds Trust because of the great work they achieve for young people across the UK.
This charity is very close to Josh’s heart. When he was 6 years old, he lost his dad through suicide following a long battle with his mental health. Throughout his teenage years, Josh started to struggle with the reality of what had happened with his father and became severely depressed which in part led him becoming physically ill. With the love and support of his family, Josh’s own mental health has significantly improved, and he now leads a happy and healthy life. Josh encountered Young Minds through a friend a few years ago and he started looking into the positive work they do for young people. It is because of this fundamental work that Young Minds continue to do that made him decide to ‘Brave the Shave’ and have his hair shaved off in the hope that he can raise money for their amazing charity.
Anyone who knows Josh on a personal level will know how much he loves his hair and how he goes to great lengths to avoid even a slight hair cut! As an amateur wrestler in his spare time, Josh’s mullet is often referred to as the ‘source of all his powers’ On Friday 21st February Josh went ahead and shaved off his hair, smashing his target of £500 and raising a whopping £802.50! With all his Photofab family offering support and cheering him on. We are all very proud of him, and it’s all for a great cause of the Young Minds Charity!
