Dye, wax or shave for charity at Isis RSL
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.

HAIR FOR CHARITY: Well done to Georgia Hay of Gin Gin High School for donating her hair for wigs.
