About Donaldson Timber Engineering

Brave the Shave

10 volunteers from DTE's Buckhaven branch have 'Braved the Shave' for a very important cause. Former DTE Buckhaven employee David Crabbe sadly passed away following a short battle with cancer just 18 months into his retirement. A radio advert from Macmillan Cancer Support Nurses inspired a number of Buckhaven's roof truss factory staff to participate in an event called "Brave the Shave" to raise money for the charity. An initial 26 volunteers were "trimmed" down to 10 and on 19 August, Louise Stewart from Fife College shaved the heads of the brave fundraisers. So far they have raised a fantastic 2,500, including a 500 donation from DTE. Big thanks to everyone involved! Looking good guys!




SafeStep is an award-winning scaffolding system for improving safety on-site, designed to minimise risk when fixing ridge bracing on tall roof trusses.
