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.
Claire’s efforts raised a staggering £12,093 which will help us to make a difference to the lives of many thousands of local people.
