A CLOSE SHAVE FOR CHAR­ITY

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

FOR the first time in 35 years, Bill Macleod has shaved his beard. How­ever, it was not just for a change of face — it was to raise money for Parkin­son’s WA. “I have se­lected Parkin­son’s WA be­cause my sis­ter was di­ag­nosed with the dis­ease in her mid-50s and my late brother-in-law was di­ag­nosed at 40 and lived with the dis­ease un­til he was 60,” Mr Macleod said. Jonathan Holo­han from Carl’s Con­ti­nen­tal Bar­bers in Swan­bourne cut Mr Macleod’s beard this month at the Clare­mont Yacht Club. He raised more than $4000 from dona­tions.
