Students Take a ‘Bald’ Stand Against Blood Cancer

In 2021, extraordinary Australians from all states and territories will again take a stand against blood cancer by rallying together to lose their locks, colour their cuts, or wax their waves in one of Australia's most-loved charity events, the Leukaemia Foundation’s World's Greatest Shave.


In a brave move, a team of local Merewether High students have banded together to take their support to the next level. Determined to break the national fundraising record for this year's World's Greatest Shave, the team, led by the school’s Prefect Secretary, Aidan Bottom, are an impressive young bunch!

The current national fundraising record is $52,000 – so they’ve got their work cut out for them. To date, 71 students have signed up for the challenge – all agreeing to either shave, cut or colour their hair for the cause, and they’ve wasted no time getting down to the very important task of raising funds, with $21,100 raised at the time we go to print.
