The clippers were working overtime at Warwick Central State School today as three willing volunteers shed their locks for the World’s Greatest Shave for the Leukaemia Foundation.
Central students Kweller Manfield and Teresa Winstanley and local dad Richard Sims submitted themselves to the services of Talk ‘N Heads hairdressers Brittnie Banks and Sarah Fenton, who kindly volunteered their time.
Between them the trio have raised close to $2000 to go towards finding a cure for blood cancers, which are focus of this year’s Shave.
Kweller told the Free Times he got involved as his soccer coach Tim Gaske lost his lower leg last year to a rare form of cancer, while Richard said he got his head shaved as “cancer affects most families at some stage and none of it is any good”.
Fund-raising through the World’s Greatest Shave is on for another week – keep an eye out in local cafes and other businesses for collection boxes and visit www.worldsgreatestshave.com to find out more … and check out some snaps from the Central SS Shave…
