Hair raising new look for Hillcrest fundraiser

IMG_0754A brave Dundee woman was given an extreme spring makeover when her head was shaved to raise money for a foodbank charity.

The newly hairless hero, Joy Watson, went under the clippers at Hillcrest Group’s HQ to raise funds for The Trussell Trust.

The Trussell Trust runs a network of over 400 foodbanks across the UK, including 6 across Tayside and the surrounding areas.

Joy said: “The work of Dundee Foodbank and The Trussell Trust is invaluable to people and families across Scotland.

“My new look will take a bit of getting used to but I’m already looking forward to the time it will shave off getting ready in the mornings.”

Joy staged the event, which raised over £1000, as part of Hillcrest Housing Association’s 50 Grand to Lend a Hand staff challenge.

With 50 Grand to Lend a Hand, part of the housing association’s 50th Anniversary celebrations, Hillcrest staff from across Scotland are putting on various events to raise a total of £50,000 for a range of charities and good causes.
