Archie Storer and friends help fundraise for cancer research
IN what is an astounding effort, local youngster Archie Storer made the remarkable $1221 contribution to help Aussies beat cancer when he took part in the World’s Greatest Shave last week.
During the World’s Greatest Shave, more than 150,000 people signed up to shave or colour their hair, raising funds for research and free services for people with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders.
Twelve-year-old Archie has been raising money through donation boxes, door knocks and other methods to sponsor the shave, and the totality of his efforts blew away students and staff from Mansfield Secondary College.
Archie was joined by young Amy Camaleri, who raised a fantastic $350 for Leukaemia research.
Students filled up the auditorium at the Mansfield Performing Arts Centre after making a donation to the cause themselves.
The event was organised by school captains and the SRC.
Students shaved their heads, coloured their hair, and some fellas
What an admirable effort, well done Archie!
All money raised by the World’s Greatest Shave goes to The Leukaemia Foundation.
The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national charity dedicated to helping more Australians survive their blood cancer and live a better quality of life.
The Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave began back in 1998 is now one of Australia’s biggest fundraising events.
