It seems people on the Adelaide Plains are not afraid to change their appearance in the name of a good cause.
Two local childcare workers have had their heads partly shaved for the World’s Greatest Shave event, while one Virginia-based gentleman permed his hair in support.
Stepping Stone Two Wells Childcare and Early Development Centre director Noelene Kakoschke and qualified educator Amanda Sandley both underwent a part head shave on Thursday March 16 to help raise funds for blood cancer.
Mallala-based hairdresser, Lauren Wittwer, of Mane Hair and Body, had the honour of cutting off Amanda and Noelene’s locks.
The pair raised more than $600, eclipsing their $500 fundraising target, and were very appreciative of donations from families who attend the centre, friends and especially a $150 donation from the Two Wells Primary School’s Student Action Team.
Virginia’s Complete Ag and Seed Supplies team member, Nick Halkias, had been growing his hair in order to get a perm and win a bet with one of his mates.
However, he decided to do this for a good cause and registered for the World’s Greatest Shave raising in excess of $700 in the process.
Well done Noelene, Amanda and Nick.
