Lacey Reeve will shave her head the day she turns 10

Mansfield Courier - - YOUTH NEWS & VIEWS -

IT has been 12 months since Lacey Reeve cut her hair.

Ini­tially, she wanted to grow it long; like her two sis­ters.

But in­stead, on De­cem­ber 11, Lacey will take out a pair of clip­pers and shave back to noth­ing. “Shiny bald” she in­tends to be. What started out as a joke be­tween Lacey and her mother, Sally, has grown into a fundrais­ing drive for char­ity.

“Mum told me if I wasn’t go­ing to brush it, I should shave it,” Lacey said.

A state­ment re­peated by moth­ers across the world for all time.

But on this oc­ca­sion, that is ex­actly what’s go­ing to hap­pen.

“On the day I turn 10, I’m go­ing to shave it all off and do­nate the money to char­ity,” Lacey said.

“It’ll be fun to have no hair – and it will help sick kids.”

Lacey has al­ready raised more than $500 through the World’s Great­est Shave For a Cure ini­tia­tive, and hopes to hit $2000 by the time De­cem­ber 11 rolls around.

The shave event will be held at the De­latite Ho­tel, from 6pm in the Court­yard.

Ev­ery­one is wel­come to at­tend.
