Bulahdelah locals take on the World’s Greatest Shave

Aleesha Ray, Ash Ray and Trevor McLeod will be braving the shave on 20 March to raise money for The Leukaemia Foundation.


SHAVING one’s hair makes a bold statement.

For the World’s Greatest Shave, it’s a pledge to raise funds towards research into leukaemia, a group of blood cancers.

Leukemia is diagnosed in more than 3700 Australians per year and has a 62% five-year survival rate.

Bulahdelah resident Aleesha Ray, along with her husband Ash Ray, who is a local police officer, and his colleague Trevor McLeod, who also lives in Bulahdelah, will be braving the shave on 20 March.

“I have always wanted to do it [World’s Greatest Shave] and just decided that this year would be the year,” Mrs Ray told Myall Coast News Of The Area.

“My husband thought it would be fun if he got involved too and we roped in Trevor, who is also a local police officer.”

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic impacting events, including the regular Bulahdelah Blue Light discos which she and her husband run, Mrs Ray knew that The Leukaemia Foundation was having a hard time with fundraising efforts due to lockdowns and wanted to help.

“We are very community minded,” stated Mrs Ray.

Mr Ray approached the Bulahdelah branch of the Country Women’s Association, and they were only too happy to help with the fundraising efforts by baking slices and cakes to sell on the day.

Mrs Ray is tying her hair into small pigtails, and for a gold coin donation, members of the public can snip one off.

Bulahdelah Country Women’s Association will provide a cake stall and a sausage sizzle, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Leukemia Foundation.

The action kicks off at 10am, 20 March at Wade Park, Crawford Street, Bulahdelah near the CWA building.

Attendants are reminded to stay COVID safe by physical distancing and not attending if unwell.
