SIR CHARLES Gairdner Hospital staff are gearing up for the World’s Greatest Shave.
A team of 12 will be shaving and colouring their hair in a fundraising effort for the Leukaemia Foundation, and have already raised more than $7000.
Consultant and head of palliative care David Dunwoodie said he had been thinking about doing the shave for a few years.
“I’m a big believer in holistic care for our patients; the money doesn’t just go towards research, but emotional and practical support,” he said.
“That support is critical.”
Dr Dunwoodie put the word out through staff at the hospital and soon recruited his ‘Shavengers’.
All are welcome to watch the shave happen at 1pm on Wednesday, March 14, in Watling Way.
