Tom Price and Pan­na­won­ica res­i­dents will have a chance to shave or colour their hair this week­end for the World’s Great­est Shave.

Com­mu­nity events will be hosted at the Pan­na­won­ica Sport­ing Club from 7pm on Fri­day and Moun­tain View Sport­ing Club in Tom Price from noon on Satur­day.

Word has it a Tyran­nosaurus rex will be present at the Tom Price event.

WA Leukaemia Foun­da­tion gener- al man­ager An­drew York said hip­ster beards and mous­taches should be in line for the chop this year as well.

“When you’re healthy, it’s hard to un­der­stand the value of coun­selling, trans­port to and from chemo­ther­apy, or be­ing given a free place to stay dur­ing treat­ment if you come from the coun­try,” he said.

The State Govern­ment re­cently an­nounced the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion would re­ceive an al­lo­ca­tion of land in Shen­ton Park to build new ac­com­mo­da­tion fa­cil­i­ties for re­gional fam­i­lies.
