Locks lopped to sup­port good cause

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

A PEN­RHOS Col­lege stu­dent has lost her locks for good cause.

Year 12 stu­dent Danielle Beeby had her head shaved at lunch in front of a big crowd on Mon­day to raise money for the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion as part of the World’s Great­est Shave.

Danielle, a boarder at the school, said she had wanted to shave her head to raise money since she was in Year 8.

“I’ve had dif­fer­ent forms of cancer in my fam­ily; I never met my grand­fa­ther but he had a huge in­flu­ence of my mum and so he was my main in­spi­ra­tion,” she said.

“I thought be­cause it’s my last year this would be my big­gest plat­form to do some­thing.

“I had six friends sup­port me and cut their hair as well.”

Danielle said the hair would be do­nated to United King­dom-based char­ity the Lit­tle Princess Trust.

“So far $3600 has been raised on­line; for me it’s not about my­self but what ev­ery­one else has been able to do,” she said.

“I blanked out when I was speak­ing in front of ev­ery­one and I was freak­ing out when my hair was be­ing shaved off, but ev­ery­one in this school is sup­port­ive.” SEE THE VIDEO AT
