Hair-raising funds

The partners and staff of Appleby Spurling Hunter recently raised $1,700 in aid of two community causes: the Humane Society and the Crisis Centre.

Sally Castro and Tina Leswal, both at Appleby as well as being board members of the Humane Society, identified that the partners and staff would pay handsomely to witness Nick Joseph, a partner in the firm’s Litigation and Insolvency Practice Group, have his impressive post-Ivan beard shaved off.

Nick generously agreed to the proposal leaving Sally and Tina to set about raising the funds. The firm’s social committee was also involved as they staged a sunset sail for staff and their guests, at which the shaving ceremony was the highlight.
