Federal Member for Petrie Luke Howarth MP will head to Canberra next week with just a few millimetres of regrowth after going bald for the World’s Greatest Shave 2014.
Luke Howarth MP was at Grace Lutheran College on Tuesday for a tour of the school’s IT facilities.
Meanwhile, students and teachers gathered in the schoolyard for an afternoon of fundraising for the Leukaemia Foundation.
Luke Howarth MP donated $100 to the College’s fundraiser and joined the 50 brave students shaving their heads.
“It was fantastic to see so many students taking part, getting their hair shaved or coloured,” said Mr Howarth.
“Grace Lutheran College collected more $13,000 in donations.”
“What a fantastic achievement.”
Every day, 31 Australians get the devastating news that they have leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a related blood disorder.
These blood cancers can affect anyone, of any age, at any time. They cannot be prevented and, because treatment usually lasts longer than for other cancers, there is a greater
impact on emotional, physical and financial aspects of life.
The World’s Greatest Shave runs from 13-16 March and will see thousands of people sponsored to shave, colour or wax their hair to help people with blood cancer.
