Rundle Mall, Adelaide

This must be the place, it’s got my name all over it!

Clipper day had finally arrived.  After a long few months of fundraising and hair growing, the time had arrived for Connor to thank all the people who had sponsored him, and shave his head, so armed with flowing locks and fundraising tin, we headed to his 12.30 appointment in Rundle Mall.

There were a few people there when we arrived, lots of the lovely hairdressers from Gauci, who had all donated their time to the event, to shave or colour those brave (or chicken enough).

Channel Ten’s Mark Aiston was MC’ing the event, (his sixth year, I think) and interviewed Connor about why he was shaving and how much money he had raised.

As you can see, he took this growing the hair business VERY seriously

During the course of the fundraising, he had told everyone that he was only having  a number two .. but inspired by those who went before him he went …..

So, having stepped up to the plate, and made his intentions clear, the fun began.

And off into the east … planning next year’s ……..colour!!

 

We’d like to thank everyone who sponsored, tweeted and retweeted, emailed, Facebooked and generally supported Connor’s fundraising efforts.

We’re so proud of him, he’s raised $1000 dollars for the Leukaemia Foundation.
