Plait’s all folks, as Zac gets the chop

❝I knew straight away once I was grow­ing it that one day I would cut it off for char­ity❞

ZAC Warde is the type of man who says ‘why not’ in­stead of ‘why’.

So when his mate chal­lenged him to a mul­let-off, a com­pe­ti­tion to see who could grow the best mul­let, of course his an­swer was ‘why not’.

Fast for­ward two years and 11 months, and Zac’s mul­let was flow­ing past his shoul­ders and ready to be shaved off for char­ity.

“If I get to $1000 I was go­ing to let them shave my head fully,” he said.

Well Zac did get his wish, in fact, he got it com­fort­ably.

He raised just un­der $1300 for AAAF, achieve­ment.

The AAAF al­lows Zac to do­nate hair to­wards wigs used by chil­dren suf­fer­ing from Alope­cia as well as the money he has raised.

Zac said he might miss his mul­let, but if he does, there’s a sim­ple so­lu­tion.

“If I do (miss it), I guess I’ll just grow an­other one and then cut that off for a dif­fer­ent char­ity,” he laughed.

Plenty of Zac’s fam­ily and friends were there in sup­port on Sun­day to watch him lose the locks in sup­port of a wor­thy cause. an in­cred­i­ble
