Eight-year-old's brave shave

TAREE Christian College students from kindergarten to year six took part in a crazy hair day to raise money for the World's Greatest Shave, an annual event run nationally to raise money to help people who have blood cancer.

Students went all out this year with crazy wigs, crazy hair styles and coloured hair spray.

Drew Sumpner-Johnson, a year four student at the college, was willing to take a huge step to help raise money for the World's Greatest Shave.

At only eight years of age and with shoulder length hair she asked her mum could she shave her hair off.

Drew's mum was so touched by her daughter's willingness to want to help out such a worthy fundraiser that she couldn't say no, with Drew telling her mum "It's okay mum my hair will grow back".

At Taree Christian College a fellow student has been undergoing chemotherapy treatment which has resulted in hair loss, and she has been the inspiration behind Drew's shave.

"If Bec is brave enough to come to school with no hair, then I can too," said Drew.

Drew had her haircut with electric clippers by her mother at school in front of all primary students.

The inspirational youngster is seeking sponsorship to help make a difference.

Sponsors can find her online at the World's Greatest Shave, all donations over $2 are tax deductible.
