Excitement builds around head shave fundraiser at Goodstart

NICOLE Wilkinson isn’t fazed at the prospect of shaving all of her hair off. 

Miss Wilkinson, along with fellow staff members at Leeton’s Goodstart Early Learning centre, are taking part in the World’s Greatest Shave this month. 

The shave is held each year to raise money to support Australians with blood cancer.

Goodstart’s fundraising target is $2000 and the organisation is about halfway there. 

Reacing $500 means staff members Courtney Patton and Chrissie Middleton will colour their hair and $1000 will see Ryan Garlick have his legs waxed and hair coloured. 

Miss Wilkinson’s hair will be shaved off when the target is reached. 

“I’m not really that worried about it … it’s just hair,” she said. 

“I’ve always wanted to do something like this because obviously you can’t be in a position to donate to these things all the time, so it was my way of helping. 

“The kids are loving all of the excitement surrounding it all.” The centre has held various fundraisers in the lead up to the shave, including a rainbow day, crazy hair day and more. 

Miss Wilkinson’s 10-year-old daughter Heidi Whyatt will also join in the festivities and have her hair coloured on the day of the shave. 

The head shave will be held at Goodstart Early Learning on March 31 at 2.30pm. 

Donations can be made online or at the centre.
