Brave Alex makes a big cut for char­ity

Weekend Courier - - Front Page -

ALEX Dick­son is only five and has a huge heart.

The brave boy raised $1091 for the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion in the World’s Great­est Shave.

His mother Leah said it was such a big ges­ture for a small boy.

“I am beam­ing with pride,” she said.

Mrs Dick­son said if Alex, a Year 1 stu­dent at Safety Bay Pri­mary School, could raise aware­ness for the cause, oth­ers could too.

“We had a party for him at home on Fri­day night where we shaved not just Alex’s hair but his un­cles, cousin and dad joined in too to sup­port him,” she said.

“It was a great night.”
