Cancer fundraiser a close shave

DOZENS of Clarence Valley residents are now proudly sporting either a shaved head or rainbow-coloured hair and beards after a World’s Greatest Shave event at Grafton Shoppingworld on Saturday.

The event, which took place outside Coles, was the brainchild of sisters-in-law Cherrie and Amy Moran, of Tucabia, who were spurned to action early in February when they realised the 2011 World’s Greatest Shave (an annual event which raises money for leukaemia research) was still short of its annual donation target.

Both women took their turn on Saturday to get their heads shaved, along with many others, and are now considering auctioning their lost locks for extra money to put towards the cause.
