A 20-year-old Lloyds Banking Group employee shaved off her long locks in front of colleagues to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.
Step Fisher’s mum Nicole Green, an IT manager at Copley Data Centre, Halifax, was amongst the crowd of colleagues cheering Steph on.
The claims advisor and fellow employee, Tanya Hainsworth, set a target to raise £3,000 for their chosen charity through work cake sales, raffles, a charity night held at Halifax’s Irish Centre, Steph’s head shave and through sponsorship in the upcoming Halifax Race for Life, on July 20; in which the fundraising duo will compete in the 10k run.
Steph, of Savile Park, said she was terrified prior to having her long, waist-length locks shaved off.
“I can’t believe I did it. It feels really weird. I’m looking forward to it growing back now!
“But everyone has said how much it suits me and they prefer me without hair.”
Steph said her and Tanya are looking forward their next leg of the fundraising journey.
“I ran 5k in last year’s Race for Life. The atmosphere was amazing - even though it’s hard, you don’t feel like you’re running because of all the people cheering you on.”
Steph and Tanya are fundraising for Cancer Research UK after colleagues of theirs nominated it their chosen charity.
Steph and Tanya are well on to smashing their target, ahead of their sponsored race, having already raised £2,500 with Lloyds match giving.
