Chop for cash

Grenfell Public School student Alexi Hunter, 10, has participated in the 2019 World's Greatest Shave after establishing her own personal campaign to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation charity.

Around six weeks ago Alexi decided she wanted to do something to help those diagnosed with blood cancer and so she signed up to take part in the World's Greatest Shave initiative. 

Last Wednesday, March 13, Alexi had her long hair cut off to create a stylish short bob.

Grace Apps from Vavoom Hair Salon in Grenfell completed the cut, whilst also assisting Alexi with the preparation of her cut hair to be donated and made into a wig. 

"I would like to thank Grace from Vavoom, and also everyone who has donated so far, it's been great to receive so much support, I'm on a mission to shave the world from blood cancer," said Alexi,

"Please sponsor me to give families facing blood cancer the emotional and practical support they need,

"You'll also fund vital research to help more people survive blood cancers, while improving their quality of life." she added.

To date Alexi has raised over $1598 for the Leukaemia Foundation with donations still pouring in.
