A Hair-Raising $52,635

Year 12 students cut and shave their hair to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.

By Jane Lilley, Head of Year 12

Radford College joined the World’s Greatest Shave last Thursday and Friday.

We were so inspired by the number of Year 12 students and staff who were brave enough to lose their hair to help beat blood cancer.

The Radford2023 fundraising page had raised a staggering $51,402 by Tuesday morning and there’s still time to donate via the Leukaemia Foundation if you haven’t already. The grand total raised between the two days is $51,600, which includes the money raised from the barbecue and bake sale.

Teacher and Assistant Head of Science, Stephanie Comino, also braved the shave, losing all of her luscious locks and raising an incredible $1,338 via her fundraising page (where you can see Ms Comino's hair before the shave).

Thank you to the students and staff who assisted with the shave. Thank you also to the students who performed in the band and ran the barbecue and bake sale during the shave to keep the large crowd fed and entertained.
