A WET T-shirt competition, jelly wrestling, karaoke and even a “buy-a-tradie” night – things are about to get very ugly at the Locomotive Hotel.
As part of the Leukaemia Foundation’s UGLY Bartender of the Year quest, 20-year-old barmaid Rebecca Shaw has lined up a smorgasbord of fundraising events.
Launching tomorrow night, events will run through until November 23, with Ms Shaw hoping to raise thousands for the cause.
UGLY stands for “Understanding, Generous, Likeable You”, and for the next six weeks Ms Shaw will don a T-shirt that reads “I’m UGLY – I need help!”
“I love charity and I love fun and I just thought this would be a great way to help out,” Ms Shaw said.
“Everyone’s been affected by someone who’s had cancer and this is a good opportunity to help others.”
The Tamworth City Bowling Club will also host fundraising events.
The Leukaemia Foundation says every $80 raised gives a regional family a place to call home for one night.
The foundation helps by providing a fully furnished home-away-from-home at no cost to regional patients for as long as it’s needed.
Millions of dollars are also invested annually in research to develop better treatments and cures for blood cancers.
