Child care centre supports cancer charity with crazy hair

ALL the colours of the rainbow inspired a group of Gladstone youngsters to help find a cure for leukemia.

The children and staff at Community Kids Clinton Park Early Education Centre went wild with their hair on Friday as they took part in the Leukaemia Foundation's World's Greatest Shave.

Community Kids Clinton Park director Kerry Hart said the youngsters could not wait to colour their hair to raise much-needed funds for cancer sufferers.

The centre, which cares for about 70-80 children, raised more than $100 for the foundation.

This will be will be added to the $10,000 recently donated by the Community Kids Clinton Park head office G8 Education.

The event is one of many over the next week as the national Be Brave and Shave campaign starts on Thursday.

The campaign raises money for research which is needed to find better treatments and cures for blood cancers.

Major events will be held at Stockland, Gladstone Marina and the Railway Hotel Calliope this weekend.
