One brave Scots All Saints student has shaved almost all her hair off, in her bid to help tackle cancer.
Year 11 student Stella Gavey was given a number two cut by fellow classmate Grace Milton on Friday, April 6, and managed to raise almost $1700 along the way.
She had set a target of $1000, but ended up smashing that, with her fundraising page boasting a figure of $1685 as of Thursday afternoon.
And she made her money not just from kind donations from her classmates, family members and friends, but from a variety of other fundraisers held at the Scots campus.
"I made and sold scrunchies and we sold $5 wax strips for the boys. They had to chose any where below the neck to get waxed off," she said.
"Some of the boarders also made a jelly bean guessing competition and Grace sold cookies.
"We went completely over the target, which was really great."
Prior to her head shave, Stella's hair went down to her collar bone but now it's almost all gone and she's got some big plans for her hair.
"I'm going to send it off and they're going to use my hair to clean up oil spills in the ocean," she explained.
It's no joke, with the World's Greatest Shave's website saying that shorter hair clippings can be transformed into floating booms to absorb oil spills at sea.
The World's Greatest Shave is an iconic fundraising event in Australia that raises money for research into cancers, which is needed to find better treatments and cures for leukaemia - a cancer of the bone marrow - lymphoma - a cancer of the lymphatic system - myeloma - a cancer of plasma cells - and other related blood disorders.
Fundraising also helps support families when they need it most, providing leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma patients with a free home-away-from-home near hospital during their treatment.
The World's Greatest Shave aims to raise $16.2 million in 2019 and this year the Leukaemia Foundation will celebrate 21 years of the fundraising campaign.
Beginning in 1998, the fundraiser has turned into one of Australia's biggest and most iconic fundraising events, with people of all ages shaving, colouring or waxing the hair off their head, chest or face.
