Off with those curls

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS/PEOPLE - By PAM ZIERK-MAHONEY

IT was a lit­tle mad­ness and mayhem through­out Mans­field last week as school stu­dents, teach­ers and par­ents got be­hind The World’s Great­est Shave event.

This year’s event has cer­tainly gained the in­ter­est of Mans­field res­i­dents and stu­dents.

On Satur­day, March 9 Cort­ney Anka­tel raised some $6000 with her quest at the Mans­field Golf Club.

Last Wed­nes­day at the Mans­field Sec­ondary Col­lege it was all about ‘hair’ or the re­moval of it.

Boys lined up to get legs waxed, heads shaved, girls and even a school prin­ci­pal lined up to have their fin­ger nails painted and a long queue of boys and girls to have their hair colored for the day.

Among t he t eachers t o have t heir heads s haved were Chris J ohn­son and An­drea Blun­den.

This was the third time Ms Blun­den has been through the process – all for a very wor­thy cause she said.

Mr John­son said he raised more than $1100 and a very young Aden Phillips raised $905.

With a sausage siz­zle trump­ing up more do­na­tions and a gold coin at the door to watch the head shaves, waxes and col­ors the to­tal raised by stu­dents and teach­ers was ap­prox­i­mately $3000.

Mans­field Pri­mary School stu­dents and teach­ers also got on board the quest for cancer re­search hold­ing their big shave event on Thurs­day.

Teacher Tom McMunn said the school raised more than $800 with spe­cial men­tion be­ing made to Colby Crox­fordDe­masi and Max Lange who were spon­sored more than $500 be­tween them to shave their heads.
