Farm man­ager parts ways with his locks

TREVOR Pezet can count the num­ber of times he has cut his hair in the past five years on one hand, but this week he will break the hair-trim­ming drought.

The Bar­den Pro­duce farm man­ager has a date with the scis­sors on March 15, where he will cut more than 30 cen­time­tres of hair from his head.

His hair ap­point­ment is in aid of those suf­fer­ing leukaemia as part of the World’s Great­est Shave.

Mr Pezet said he usu­ally couldn’t find the en­ergy to keep up with hair ap­point­ments, but he wanted to par­tic­i­pate in a worth­while cause.

“While I’ve still got hair, I feel like I may as well use it to help oth­ers,” Mr Pezet said.

“The World’s Great­est Shave re­ally helps pub­li­cise and ed­u­cate peo­ple about leukaemia and other can­cers, whilst high­light­ing that ter­mi­nal dis­eases need all the fund­ing they can get.”

Mr Pezet has al­ready raised more than $1000 for the cause, but hoped to reach $2,500 for Team J&J, a char­ity group which raises money for the Leukeamia Foun­da­tion in the Lock­yer Val­ley.

This year is the third time Mr Pezet has par­tic­i­pated in the shave: he has also waxed his back for the cause.

But rather than shav­ing his head in full, Mr Pezet plans to leave some hair on his head by styling his hair short.

Cut­ting his hair will still be an ad­just­ment for Mr Pezet for has had to tie his hair back in re­cent years.

But apart from hav­ing to put on more sun­screen and feel­ing the wind against his scalp, Mr Pezet said cut­ting off his locks was no big deal.

He said most of the hair cut off would be used to make a wig.

Mr Pezet is just one of the two mil­lion Aussies who have taken part in the cause in past two decades.
