Boxers lose locks for charity

WARWICK Boxing Club patron Dr John Kiss is one of five club officials who will get their heads shaved if $500 is promised at the club spar night tomorrow.

Dr Kiss, club president Andrew Grafton, secretary Andrew Jones, trainer Rodd Parry and boxer Shane Parry have volunteered to have their locks shaved in return for donations.

Jones said the money would assist the trip to Vanuatu for at-risk boys.

“This is the first time I have offered to get my head shaved,” Jones said.

“My wife Tanya says she will still love me when I lose all my hair.”

Jones said there would be plenty of people happy to donate to ensure Dr Kiss had his hair shaved.

“Dr Kiss takes a fitness session each Wednesday at the gym and in school terms, instructs boarding students from The Scots PGC College in boxing and fitness,” Jones said.

“He is a popular figure at the gym.”

Trainer Rodd Parry and his son Shane are set to lose their red flowing locks while the tip is Grafton already has a cap organised for the dreaded loss of hair.

Jones is organising a local hairdresser to shave the heads but has another option if necessary.

“Club supporter Lex Brackin teaches shearing at TAFE and could be called upon to do the cutting if necessary,” Jones said.

Donations will be taken on the night.
