Close shave for char­ity

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

The need­for a hair­cut has be­come a chance to con­trib­ute to char­ity as part of the World’s Great­est Shave for one Kar­ratha wo­man.

Ta­mara Musto will have her long hair shorn to a No. 2 cut by lo­cal bar­ber No­to­ri­ous Cuts for the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion cam­paign, which raises money for blood can­cer re­search, once she reaches a pre-set tar­get of $5000.

She said the cut was ini­tially for prac­ti­cal rea­sons, be­fore she re­alised it was also a way to raise money for a wor­thy cause.

“With four boys, I just don’t have the time to style my hair,” she said. “So I thought, if I’m go­ing to do a huge chop, I might as well do it prop­erly.”

Mrs Musto be­gan her cam­paign on Septem­ber 12 and said do­na­tions were com­ing in fast.

“I want to make sure that I hit a tar­get of at least $5000, and once that’s reached then it’s off with the locks,” she said.
