Alison joins war against cancer

FOR some Year 12 girls, blonde locks or a brunette bob is a pride and joy, but for Alison Driver her hair - or lack of it - is a way to help a good cause.

Alison of Scots PGC College will be shaving her head to help find a cancer cure on March 21 in front of the entire school.

Alison said she had no personal reason to be doing it, she just wanted to do something charitable.

"I just wanted to do some sort of charity event and thought, why not," Alison said.

She is following in the footsteps of two past students, and wants to make it an annual school tradition.

Despite her friends being a tad nervous about Alison's big change, she said she was not scared to wave goodbye to her long auburn hair.

"I would rather look back at photos and know I did something worthwhile," Alison said.

"I have even had offers from people who will pay for me not to cut it. Mum is looking into making my hair into a wig to help out," she said.

She hopes to raise $3000 for the leukaemia foundation and is asking the community go get behind her.
