St Monica’s joins World’s Greatest Shave
COURAGEOUS St Monica’s Primary School students have put their hair on the chopping block for the 20th Anniversary of the Leukaemia Foundation World’s Greatest Shave. The event helps raise awareness of blood cancer that has touched the lives of family members.
Ava Platts and Jack Howlett proudly shaved their heads in front of the school in an effort to raise funds for vital research, and emotional and practical support for families facing blood cancer.
The students have helped to raise a whopping $8000 for the Leukemia Foundation which will transform their clippings into wigs for cancer patients and ‘floating blooms’ that absorb oil spills at sea.
