The Big Shave!

25th August 2018

 

Claire Austin, Managing Director at Austin’s Funeral Services, was born and bred in Stevenage and for the past 20 years has run the family business which was established in the town more than 300 years ago. The company are very community focussed and are keen to support local charities and causes. After taking part in a number of fundraising activities in recent years, Claire took the brave decision to shave her head at the company’s annual Family Fun Day to raise funds for Stevenage Community Trust. The ‘big shave’ took place on Saturday 25th August 2018 at the fairy-tale themed event with Claire dressed as Rapunzel before having her head shaved in front of 150 guests.

To date, Claire’s efforts have raised over £9,000 which will help us to make a difference to the lives of many hundreds of local people.  

Donations can still be made at www.love2donate.co.uk/claireaustin Your support would be greatly appreciated by Claire and those who need our support in the community.

You can listen to the recent radio interview with Claire below.
