Girls cut hair in memory of Charlotte’s mum
Matamata teenager Charlotte Chittick and her friend Madi Swap, both 13, will auction off their hair after they get it cut at a calendar launch on August 3. Charlotte lost her mum, Lisa, to cancer earlier this year.
Both girls will get their hair cut short by Tauranga hairdresser Brett Holmes, who has donated his time.
The hair will be made into wigs for women who loose their hair to cancer.
The Racy Girls calendar will be launched on Sunday at The Clubhouse in Cambridge and will feature local jockeys in glamorous outfits. The outfits are inspired by the page’s sponsors who are various local stables and trainers.
Charlotte’s dad Mark will also be auctioning a tour of his farm, Waikato Stud.
Both a portion of the calendar’s profits, and all of the proceeds from the fundraiser, will go to Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand.
Calendar organiser Zea Marks decided to donate to the charity as she had been close to Lisa’s parents.
