Friend an inspiration for shave

CATHY Tabor says she couldn’t be prouder of her daughter Zara and her friend Kaisha Bender, who had their head shaved on Saturday night as part of the World’s Greatest Shave.

“For them to do that at an age where image is quite important to them I think is a real inspiration,” she said.

“I don’t know if I could do it.”

The event at the Bottom Pub attracted more than 200 people along, and alongside raffles, 100 clubs, donations from friends and money still coming in, they have raised more than $5000 for the Leukaemia Foundation.

Zara and Kaisha decided to do the shave as a tribute to their friend Siobhan Hoy, who was diagnosed with leukaemia last June, and joined them on the night when they lost their locks.

Their missing hair has been donated to a non-profit organisation who make wigs for cancer patients.
