Gemma braves the shave
A brave Gemma Leech shaved her hair for a cure on Friday.
Ms Leech, 21, who attends the Goulburn Options Inc. facility in Seymour, decided to brave the shave for charity after a friend developed bowel cancer.
‘‘I’ve never done anything like this before,’’ Ms Leech said as she nervously awaited the big buzz.
Gemma organised the event with support from Goulburn Options staff and everyone at the facility was there to join in by either colouring their hair or shaving their head too.
Rebecca Ashfield-Martin from Harper Rose Hair in Wallan kindly offered her talents as hairdresser for the day.
Gemma has raised $557.80 for the Leukaemia Foundation so far but people have up until June 30 to sponsor a person participating in the World’s Greatest Shave.
To do so, contact staff at Goulburn Options Seymour.
