Waihi College Students Shave For A Cure

This Wednesday, September 25, Waihi College students will be shaking out their full heads of hair and braving a head shave or undergoing a ponytail chop to raise money and awareness for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand.

Ponytails long enough will be donated to Freedom Wigs who use donated hair to create wigs for those in need.

Year 13 Waihi College students, Lucy Keall, Amy Magyar and Kane Curtis called in to Gold FM for a chat with Brian Gentil.

Nine boys and three girls are prepared to ‘get the chop’ at Waihi College this Wednesday evening. Amy, who has long hair, will be losing a minimum of 35.5 cm of her pride and joy, saying, “I’ll be left with a pretty stylish bob cut afterwards but it’s all for a good cause, so worth it.”

Local barbershop team Waihi Maddcutzz will be sharpening up their tools and doing the business at the college hall to make sure there are some very styley heads afterwards.

The whole community is invited to take a gold coin along to Waihi College Hall at 6.30 pm to help support the students and raise money for this great cause. To support and donate online - follow the link shaveforacure.co.nz and search Waihi College.
