St Mark’s Anglican Community School teacher Caroline Bamford will join Piers and Nicky as they brave the razor for the World’s Greatest Shave.

Piers underwent intensive chemotherapy and had a bone marrow transplant at two years old after doctors diagnosed him with acute myeloid leukaemia.

‘I am participating in the World’s Greatest Shave and shaving my head for blood cancer so that I can raise money to help other people get through blood cancer like I did and hopefully live a full and happy life, like I wish to,’ he said.

‘Knowing that there are other people around the world going through what I managed to survive has inspired me to do whatever I can to help them have the best possible chances of surviving.’

Nicky will participate in support of her father who has undergone treatment for lymphoma.

Mrs Bamford is a St Mark’s ex-student and has two children attending the primary school. Visit: www.worldsgreatestshave.com.
