Grafton man set for hair-raising ‘attack' from kids

IT'S taken about a year and by lunchtime today they'll be all gone.

We're talking about Grafton Shave for a Cure candidate Robbie Leek's locks, which his kids, Caitlin, Kelsie and Torin will attack at noon in Market Square.

Robbie's wild locks have been growing since late last year, however, when he heard his brother in law, Neville Lollback, had been diagnosed with leukaemia, he knew he had to do something about it.

"When I heard about Nev, I just had to do something for him," Robbie said.

"I've only been fundraising for a week and already we have raised $500.

"I know there's about 50 people already who'll be down in Market Square to see it."

It will be a new-look Robbie who is banging the bass drum for the Grafton Pipe Band when it marches later in the day.

If you want to donate to the cause go to the Cancer Council website and find Robbie's donation page.
