Centre Manager Colleen Mulhollan-Ruiz told News Of The Area, “Overall in 2017, MarketPlace along with our customers and volunteers raised $17,000 with the World’s Greatest Shave, Light the Night, Christmas Show N Shine and merchandise sale.”

“This fundraising is so important to our local area to help keep transport cars on the road for patients, the up keep of the home for families to stay at no charge near the Mater Hospital while love ones are having treatment, and of course for the research to try and stop cancer.”

“I will say in 2015 we raised $11,000 in the one day and I would love to go back to this amount if possible this year, so we’re setting the challenge for the community.”

The event will take place on Thursday 15 March between 11am and 7pm, live in the centre court outside Big W.

The community are invited to shave their heads, or colour their hair any colour of the rainbow with hair spray paint. Should people not wish to shave or colour, they can simply just make a donation on the day.

All donations are tax deductible.

MarketPlace Management, Christianes Hair Design, Michelle from Nextra and the Leukaemia Foundation will all be doing the shave and colours on the day so all people will be in good hands.

On the day, representatives from the Leukaemia Foundation will be on hand for people to talk to should they require further information on how they can support, or help someone they may know that needs help.

If you are unable to make the day, but would still like to contribute, you can do so at:

Last year’s event had a number of young people fundraising to have their hair chopped at the event. MarketPlace hope to see even more this year.
