A MYRTLEFORD P12 College student has raised more than $1500 for blood cancer research after participating in the World’s Greatest Shave last Thursday.
Year eight student Zoe Lyons will contribute a total of $1686 to the Leukaemia Foundation after weeks of fundrasing prior to losing her hair for the “be brave and shave” initiative.
Having been interested in the cause for some time, Zoe decided she would take part this year.
And, despite a few pre-shave nerves, it didn’t take her long to embrace her new look.
“I like it, I was a bit worried what I would look like, but it’s not too bad,” Zoe said.
“I thought I’d be in tears when they cut it off but thankfully I wasn’t.”
