Money raised will go towards research and care for people with blood cancers, something 23 Western Australians are diagnosed with every week.

St Jerome’s Primary School’s Scott Lilleyman said he was inspired to take on the challenge after seeing the effects of blood cancers first hand.

‘As a school teacher I have taught children who have been affected by leukaemia and about a decade ago my godson, who was seven at the time, died from it,’ the Kalamunda resident said.

He hoped to raise a ‘good amount of money’ for the cause.

St Jerome’s will hold a funky hair day on Thursday March 12, for students for a gold coin donation.
