Mim Pereira (Culburra Pharmacy), Abbey Jackson (Culburra Pharmacy) and Jason Booth (Woolworths) all took part in the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave.
The trio wanted to support a good cause and they received strong support from the community.
The shavers raised over $5000 which will no doubt continue to rise as money is still rolling in.
The lads from the Culburra Beach/Orient Point Men’s Shed ran a barbecue on the day which also raised important funds.
Kylie Woolage did the most of the shaving but Abbey’s aunty, Anne Dewsbury, helped shave her niece.
The money raised goes to the Leukemia Foundation and will be used to support people with blood cancer.
Blood cancer in the third most common cause of cancer death in Australia, claiming more lives than breast cancer or melanoma and every day another 35 people will be diagnosed.
Leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma are types of blood cancer. Blood cancer and related disorders can develop in anyone, of any age, at any time.
More than 60,000 Australians are living with blood cancer or related disorders and the equivalent of one person every 41 minutes is diagnosed.
The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national charity dedicated to helping more Australians with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related disorders survive their blood cancer and live a better quality of life.
