Off with those curls
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.
