Kingdom’s Steve Foster donating hair for charity

c20b7c75-e965-4c9d-843d-9ed7311d70d2Kingdom’s Legal Manager, Steve Foster, will soon be looking very different, as he is going to be shaving off his trademark pony tail to help make wigs for children without hair. As well as donating his hair, Steve is also raising money for the charity that provides the wigs at the same time.

Steve has been with Kingdom since the company was first founded by CEO Terry Barton BA (Hons) back in 1993, so celebrated his 25-year anniversary with the company last month at the same time as Kingdom celebrated its 25-year anniversary. Steve has worked in every department at Kingdom over the last 25 years, and last year was presented with a CEO Award last year for his commitment, dedication and contribution to the company.

Commenting on his fundraising efforts, Steve said: “The ponytail is going. My hairline at the front is getting further and further back and I figured that whilst it is still not too grey to be used it would be great to donate it to a charity to make wigs for children that unfortunately don’t have any.”

e84d3d1d-f7b1-4e6b-bc55-712af434bf5aKingdom is pleased to be sponsoring Steve, who has so far raised an impressive £220 for charity and is hoping to raise more. The charity Steve is raising money for is the Little Princess Trust, a charity that provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to children and young adults up to the age of 24, who are being treated for cancer and other illnesses to help them cope when they lose their hair. To date the charity has given away more than 6,000 free wigs. If you would like to find out more about the work of the Little Princess Trust, please visit http://www.littleprincesses.org.uk/

Speaking about how much he is hoping to raise for this extremely worthy cause, Steve said: “I am not setting any particular target, I just want to raise as much as possible, so when donations stop coming in I may bring the date forward! Whoever donates the most might even have the pleasure of cutting it if they want!”
