Leader prepares for a big shave

Cr Andrea Cooper

Stawell district community leader Andrea Cooper is looking forward to ‘a new look’ in her push to help raise money and awareness in a fight against blood cancer.
Cr Cooper, a Northern Grampians Shire councillor, will go under the clippers and lose all her hair at Stawell Retravision store at 10am on March 15 as part of the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave.
She said unlike some of her friends and family, she had few qualms about having her head shaved for the cause.
“Why not? People say it’s a brave thing to do but it really isn’t. My hair will grow back. I lost three of my closest friends in three years from cancer and they’re not coming back,” she said.
The annual World’s Greatest Shave is from March 15 to 17 and donations can be left in money-raising tins at Stawell businesses.
