CUTTING FOR A CAUSE: Karen Van Hoof cuts Troy Elderidge’s hair KAREN Van Hoof has been cutting for a cause with the T o o w o o m b a - b o r n h a i r - dresser raising money for flood and cyclone victims across the state.
Ms Van Hoof had originally organised a charity day at her business Kazam’s Barber shop where she would donate all profits to flood victims in her hometown but after the cyclone hit, she decided to extend t he f undraiser t o cover all Queensland natural disaster victims.
Between a collection tin and the proceeds of the charity day over the weekend, Ms Van Hoof has raised $ 1175 for the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal.
‘‘ In Toowoomba, my Dad can’t even go back to his work yet because it is still destroyed so that’s how bad it is in some places,’’ she said.
‘‘ I just want to thank everyone for their ongoing support for us.
‘‘ If we all do our little bit to help, it adds up at the end of the day.’’
