Aunty in­spires Jay’s shave

Pilbara News - - Education - Louise Alling­ham

■ Eleven year-old Jay Grif­fiths has raised more than $3000, and re­cently shaved his head for the World’s Great­est Shave.

The St Paul’s Pri­mary School head boy was mo­ti­vated to join the cause, which sup­ports Aus­tralians with blood can­cer and fund re­search, af­ter his aunt was di­ag­nosed with leukaemia.

Jay’s goal was to raise $2000 in two weeks, and if his goal was ex- ceeded, his dad Jed vowed to lop off his locks as well.

The father and son now have match­ing buzz cuts af­ter get­ting the chop on March 13 at the Tam­brey Tav­ern, with a gang of fam­ily and friends cheer­ing them on.

Mr Grif­fiths said he was proud of his son, who came up with the idea him­self to do the shave and raise money.
