Shaving for cancer research

ONE by one they lined up to face the clippers and walked away proudly, albeit a little lighter, knowing they had done a wonderful thing for a worthy cause.

Yesterday, Clarence Medical Centre Maclean staff members Lee Brown, Danielle Moore, Hannah Brown, Ros Hollis, Sarah Finlayson and Deb Flanagan farewelled their locks for cancer research when they took part in the World’s Greatest Shave.

“It just felt so amazing, it was a great thing to do,” Ms Moore said.

“I’ve wanted to do this for a long time and I was rapt when my workmates got involved too.

"It’s such a worthy cause.”

Centre manager Angela Bliss, who coloured her hair blue for the cause, expressed her pride in fellow staff members.

“We’ve never done anything like this before and it’s something we would definitely do again to raise money and cancer awareness,” she said.

In one month, Clarence Medical Centre raised more than $6000 as part of the World’s Greatest Shave.
