Each year, 20,000 people face the clippers and bravely shave their hair as part of the World’s Greatest Shave, to send a powerful message of hope to the 47 Australians who are diagnosed with blood cancer every single day.
In 2021, five staff members from East Grampians Health Service who work at Willaura Healthcare will shave their hair and raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation. They include Julie Chick, Brian Kelly, Gary Cunningham, Jess Peters and Kathy Young.
They have started growing their hair and in March next year will show off their long locks before shaving it all off.
A number of fundraisers will be held over the coming months, including a giant raffle, and we will keep you posted as to how you can get your hands on a ticket.
