Get ready to have a chuckle and support a fantastic cause with none other than the Mayor of Trowbridge, Stephen Cooper! Brace yourself for some serious giggles as he takes the reins at January’s Full Council meeting, sporting only half a beard! But the fun doesn’t stop there. For a whole week afterwards, the Mayor has pledged to keep his beard half-shaved to raise awareness and funds for local charities.
You can support your community when you sponsor his beard shave, with all proceeds going to local charities that provide services to those in need. Plus, his half-beard look is sure to turn heads and ignite conversations about the importance of supporting local causes.
Don’t let this opportunity pass you by! Get behind this awesome cause and have a good laugh with the Mayor of Trowbridge. Donate to his half-beard shave and make a real difference in your community.

About Mayor Cooper’s Chosen Charities
Stepping Stones is an independent charity that supports children from birth to four who have special needs. They recognise and support each child’s potential. Their primary goal is to provide timely therapy and assistance to children who have delayed development. Their dedicated, qualified, and experienced team encourages children to learn and develop through play. Some of the children who attend Stepping Stones may already have a diagnosed condition, but all of the children supported by Stepping Stones have developmental delays and have challenges gaining abilities that other children take for granted.
Trowbridge Future is in the centre of the community, supporting not only Trowbridge’s youth but also its residents. Their youth programmes in Trowbridge provide sustainable, frequent, and holistic activities that encourage the town’s young people to reach their maximum potential both personally and socially. This is promoted through informal learning and participation in empowering and constructive activities in a safe and non-judgmental setting.
They also assist Trowbridge’s vulnerable population by providing safe spaces such as the establishment of Kindness Cafés, three community fridges, and drop-in sessions where they encourage connection building and peer support to facilitate ongoing positive journeys of growth.
