The Buzzed Bunnies raise almost $17,000 in the World’s Greatest Shave.
On Monday, March 22, 2021, The Buzzed Bunnies team of 20 from Ainslie Low Head shaved, cut or coloured their hair as part of the Leukemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave.
Team Captain and Enrolled Nurse at Ainslie Low Head, Toni Miller, said that she was thrilled with the result and very proud of the team.
‘A simple comment to Heather Currant [Facility Manager at Ainslie Low Head] that I was planning on participating turned into a team of 10 “shavers” and 10 “colours”,’ Toni said.
‘We had three residents join in on the day as well, who had their hair shaved; one had shown interest earlier and two on the day said that they would like to participate.’
The team raised an enormous $16,692.88, greatly exceeding their initial target of $5,000 when they first joined the challenge.
Two local hairdressers, Kelly and Chloe from Kaizen Hair, volunteered to come in to do the team’s shaves and colours. The Great Shave was held in the dining room at Ainslie Low Head so that everyone could participate. Between 20 to 30 residents came to watch throughout the event.
The Buzzed Bunnies fundraising webpage will remain live until the end of March. The team hopes to reach $17,000 – if you would like to donate please click here.
