It what could be the old­est per­son to take part in the World’s Great­est Shave Joy Goold, 92 is shav­ing her head on March 17.

She will be joined by her grand­daugh­ter Rachel O’Dwyer.

They will be shav­ing their heads in aid of the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion's World’s Great­est Shave

The shave will take place at Drouin Pri­mary School where Rachel teaches. It will co­in­cide with the school’s ‘Crazy Hair Day’.

Joy cared for her hus­band George as he lived with the com­pli­ca­tions of a blood can­cer called Poly­cythaemia Vera for sev­eral years. He died in 1997. The Leukaemia Foun­da­tion look af­ter all blood dis­or­ders and can­cers mak­ing this a char­ity of im­por­tance to the fam­ily.

The school is hold­ing a raf­fle to be drawn on the day. Many lo­cal Drouin and War­ragul busi­nesses have been very gen­er­ous with items and vouch­ers for prizes.
