Close shave for a great cause

A GIRLS' Night Out and garage sale were two of the fundraisers that helped Heather Hibbitt raise $1074 for the Warwick branch of the Leukaemia Foundation in the World's Greatest Shave, Warwick style, on Saturday.

She was one of 30 people who saw their locks get lopped or had their hair coloured at Rose City Shoppingworld.

Heather even attracted fundraising support from as far away as Canberra and Perth after emailing friends, and raised funds through Facebook.

It was the second time in four years she had her hair shaved for the cause.

She had donation tins at her garage sale and at St Mark's Anglican Church, which helped the fundraising effort.

Warwick is expected to have raised $8000 again this year.
