LOCAL BUSINESSES are preparing for the World’s Greatest Shave this month including returners Sanitair at Tweed Heads South.
Hosted by the Leukaemia Foundation, the World’s Greatest Shave runs from March 16 to 19 and helps make a difference to Aussie families who are living with blood cancer.
Blood cancer is the third most common cause of cancer death in Australia, claiming more lives than breast cancer or melanoma and every day another 35 people will be diagnosed.
The staff at Sanitair will shave and colour their hair this year to raise money for a great cause.
“We love giving back to our local community and with Sanitair being nationwide, our local community expands throughout Australia,” Sanitair Tweed Heads owner Craig Jefferies said.
“Sanitair is recruiting the head office staff and technicians from our 50 branches across Australia to join their team and shave or colour their hair, moustache or beard and/or donate by sponsoring the team.
“On March 17th at 3pm, we’ll be hosting a BBQ and drinks at our head office in Tweed Heads, New South Wales for Sanitair staff and technicians to join us for a good old laugh.
Craig, the head of this ship will be shaving his beard and moustache on the day, and the ladies in the office will be colouring their hair too.
“The money sponsored will provide emotional and practical support to families facing blood cancer and fund vital research that will mean more people survive, while improving their quality of life.”
