Hair goes south for cancer

HAIR is not part of the uniform at Coles Southgate after a group headshave on Friday.

In support of colleague Leonie McConnachie, who is battling breast cancer, eight of the Coles Southgate team and one Tamworth high student have lost their locks.

They have a fundraising aim of $4500, combined with manager Lachlan Stewart’s Tamworth Celebrity Dance For Cancer fundraising.

So far, they have raised more than $2300, with more than $500 raised from donations just on Friday.

As well as shaving their hair off, the staff ran a cake stall and barbecue and raffled a television.

As fundraising fever struck Southgate, Tamworth Remedial Massage chipped in with a massage voucher donated for Mrs McConnachie and Euphoria donated a spa voucher.

The store is still accepting donations for their manager, Mr Stewart, who will dance for cancer on June 14.
