Hair today, gone tomorrow

Not everyone kicks off the New Year – or their retirement – by shaving their head for charity.

But Silver Chain’s retiring EGM of strategy did just that to raise funds for some of Silver Chain’s most disadvantaged clients.

More than a hundred colleagues joined Lyn at Silver Chain House in Perth to raise cash and support Lyn Jones in her Close Shave for charity.

The hairdressing team from Head Turners Salon in Highgate were ready with the clippers, neatly taking Lyn’s hair to a chic number three crop in a matter of minutes.

Speaking after the fundraiser, Lyn said: “How do you like the new retirement hairdo?”

“I was really keen to kick off retirement with something quirky fun and something that'll raise money for an organisation that's very dear to my heart,” Lyn added.

“Silver Hand gives a hand up to people who are struggling and doing it hard within our client group and it makes a big difference.

"We've raised over six and a half thousand at this point in time and I'm really keen to see if we can to break the targets for that.

“So, if you've got the chance to donate some money we'd really appreciate it."

All fund raised go to for Silver Hand, a fund created to benefit Silver Chain’s most disadvantaged clients.
