Dye, wax or shave for char­ity at Isis RSL

Isis Town and Country - - News - By JODIE DIXON

THERE was no stop­ping the clip­pers at the Isis RSL last Sun­day when brave souls stood up to Shave for a Cure.

Ea­ger par­tic­i­pants stood up for the chal­lenge and nom­i­nated them­selves to shave their heads.

Cheers and laugh­ter filled the RSL as the hair hit the floor.

Jill Owen was the fear­less leader of team Childers as she coloured her hair for the char­ity event.

“It was a great day and ev­ery­one dug deep to sup­port the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion,” Mrs Owen said.

“It was fan­tas­tic to see young girls come in and shave their heads and do­nate their hair for wigs.”

On the Fri­day the Grand Ho­tel also ran the char­ity event.

Event or­gan­is­ers said it was a mas­sive af­ter­noon with plenty of peo­ple do­nat­ing.

The money raised will go to­wards re­search­ing blood can­cers and hope­fully one day find­ing a cure.

I too, the not so fear­less reporter of Town and Coun­try, nom­i­nated my­self to Shave for a Cure. I didn’t reach my tar­get so I kept a lit­tle hair.

The sup­port and en­cour­age­ment spurred on oth­ers to dye, wax or shave and the high­light of the day was wit­ness­ing a man by the name of Bob Hen­der­son wax his chest.

The crowd, with phones in hand, stood close to snap a price­less photo of Mr Hen­der­son brav­ing what no man should ever do, al­low women to wax him.

By this time next week team Childers and the Grand Ho­tel will have the to­tal amount raised.

It’s not too late to do­nate.
