Kingdom’s Steve Foster donating hair for charity

Kingdom’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.”
