Razor gang in Shave for a Cure

FIVE young men and one young woman from Evans River K-12 will soon brave the razor and hair colour to help raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation and they are asking for your support.

Year 10 students Liam Kelly, Sam Weekes, Clem McGeary, Izack Rodda and Daniel Duncan are willing to forego hair for a few weeks and Jade Harvey will be colouring hers, as they join many people around the country in Shave for a Cure.

"It seemed like a good thing to do," Liam said.

"We've done it twice before and we do it every second year."

The students are aiming to raise $2000-$2500 in order to beat previous years fundraising.

"In the first year we made $1200 and the second time we got $1100," Liam said.

The boys will have their heads shaved at the front of IGA at Evans Head from 8am on Saturday, March 17, and there will also be a sausage sizzle.

Colour over Shave

Jade said she would colour her hair all shades of the rainbow.

"We'll be going around and asking shopkeepers to support us," Sam said.

"Anyone can donate though."

If you'd like to help the cause, you can contact Liam on 0431 032 636.
