#913 ... Shave a lid

Getting a summer haircut will take on a whole new meaning this week

Some incredible brave people getting their hair all shaved off to raise funds for the Child Cancer Foundation .. this is an annual event and this Wellington contribution is in Midland Park, Lambton Quay

Funrazor, the Child Cancer Foundation’s nationwide fundraising event, encourages members of the public to shave their hair in support of brave kids with cancer.

For those not keen on a new hairdo, there will be a chance to get a photo with the actors and entertainment activities at the shave station. Money raised at the event will help provide emotional and practical support for children suffering from cancer and their families.

I am proud to have been a founding member of the Wellington Branch of CCF and was instrumental along with other fine people to getting it established in the Capital c 1985. It is pleasing to see the support of people from many walks of life ... helping out those families facing traumatic events dealing with children with cancer.

That's a very unusual fundraiser, but fantastic! I hope the foundation raises a lot of money this year.
