Three Bundaberg physiotherapists have today braved the shave, losing their locks to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.
Jessica Barratt, Georgia Clifford and Ashton Isles took part in their World's Greatest Shave event at the Bundaberg Hospital, with hairdressers from The Place Salon helping out with their new look.
Jessica said she was feeling a lot lighter with her new hair-do and was looking forward to not having to spend as much time maintaining her locks.
“It's a lot cooler and it feels quite smooth,” she said.
“I was going to put a bandana on but I think I am just going to rock it!
“I will have to put a lot of sun cream on though because I am very pale.”
The event at the Bundaberg Hospital not only featured head-shaving, but also some leg waxing to further raise money for the World's Greatest Shave.
Jessica said she wanted to get involved in the Leukaemia Foundation cause to support those going through cancer.
“I have had a couple of relatives with cancer and when Ashton approached me about it we just thought it was for a really good cause,” she said.
The team are well on their way to reaching their fundraising goal of $5,000, with $4,900 already in the kitty.
“Our goal was originally $2000 and we have upped it quite a bit,” Jessica said.
“We did a bake sale at work which raised about $1,000.
“The support has been really great.”
