Claire Austin was awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship by the Rotary Club of Stevenage during a tea party to mark Rotary Day, hosted by club president Alex Lang.
The fellowship was to recognise her fundraising efforts on behalf of the Stevenage Community Trust, which included shaving all her hair off.
A whole host of charities were presented with cheques to honour their work in the community, including Mercy Ships, Just Be A Child, Garden House Hospice Care, The Red Shed, Red Cross Hertfordshire, and the Stevenage Community Trust.
