Shave It Off!

Are you brave? Take on the shave!

Brave the shave for Our Hospice!

The pandemic has meant many of our fundraising events and activities haven’t gone ahead in the last two years, so we’re facing a severe shortfall in our funding.

Lop off those lovely locks for us – get a brand new look whilst raising vital funds for your local hospice!

You’ll have people queuing up to sponsor you to shave all your hair off; it’s a fantastic way to fundraise and you get a free haircut in the process. It’s a win-win!

Love the idea but not sure about shaving your head? Why not consider a beard shave or leg wax instead?

Hair today, gone tomorrow - raising nearly £500!

Chris Malden, Managing Director of Prestige Security decided that his team were up to the challenge and ready to brave the shave:

We recently chose to shave our hair in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice. Not only is it personal to me as they looked after my Grandad in his last days many years ago, but the work they do is simply amazing. We have worked alongside them on their fundraising events for many years, and will continue to show our support by donating and raising vital funds.

June lops her locks for St Catherine’s Hospice

June Harvey decided to lop off her lockdown locks to raise money for us when her mother, Rosemary was under our care.

June said, “St Catherine’s isn’t just looking after my lovely Mum, they’re also taking care of me and our entire family. I was a little nervous before my head shave started but I felt excited too. I’m glad to be able to raise money and give something back to St Catherine’s for all the support they give to poorly people and their families, not just ours, but others in the community too. Their support has made a big difference to us at a difficult time.
