A bald new look for Christmas

Sharon is Group Finance Director at award-winning Basingstoke-based Centerprise International, and she and colleagues have pledged to use their fundraising muscle to support three charities over the next 12 months.

To get the fundraising ball rolling specifically for Ark Cancer Centre Charity, Sharon decided to lose her locks in time for Christmas – and her brave feat has paid dividends.
