Hartlepool RNLI supporters Fiona Jagger and Diana Clements are set to have their heads shaved on Saturday 28th August at 6.00pm to fundraise for the charity that saves lives at sea.
Fiona who is a Director of an on-site and remote IT training and consultancy business will be having her locks shorn at the Fishermans Arms at the Headland, Hartlepool whilst her friend Diana will be facing the chop at her home in Chesterfield but supporters will be able to watch Diana's headshave simultaneously virtually on a laptop at the pub.
Fiona who also lives in Chesterfield said 'Both Diana and I have supported the wonderful work of the Hartlepool RNLI volunteers for many years now and I always look forward to meeting up with some of the crew who have become great friends of mine when I'm visiting my relations in the town'.
This is the first time Fiona and company administrator Diana have had their heads shaved for charity and Fiona said 'I'm really looking forward to having short hair but it's become a nerve wracking time before the event. Its a mix of excitement and fear. We both have sunglasses and hats to wear afterwards just in case'.
The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts. The RNLI operates 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
