Hair today, gone tomorrow
CLARENCE Valley residents may have seen a lot more bald heads around the place on the weekend as fundraisers took to the clippers for the annual 'Shave for a Cure' day.
At Grafton's TAFE campus, hair changed colour and in some cases all came off in the name of raising money for cancer research. At the New School of Arts in South Grafton, co-ordinator Eletha Green went all out and lost her locks to raise money.
"We ended up raising over $1000 which was great," Ms Green said.
"I had my hair shaved and my assistant had hers coloured...blue, pink, red and purple."
Ms Green said she was inspired to raise money for cancer research because she had cared for a lot of children with leukaemia and thought she would like to help them.
"Hopefully, if they can find a cure for leukaemia, they can find a cure for everything else," she said.
"The other thing is that when you walk down the street and people look at you it really does give you some sense of what they must go through."
