Players rally behind World's Greatest Shave
Tuesday 26 February 2013 3:11 PM
Wests Tigers players Blake Ayshford and Adam Blair are feeling a lot ‘fresher and lighter’ following their head shave at Concord Oval today to raise funds for The Leukaemia Foundation.
It was Blair’s first hair cut in 14 months with the Kiwi international deciding to undergo the clippers and razors to help promote the annual World's Greatest Shave event. Ayshford's big crop of hair also went.
IBF Middleweight boxing champion Daniel Geale took time out on his birthday to support the event. The proud Wests Tigers Member admitted to being a ‘little nervous’ with the razor as he helped shave off Blair’s head.
“I know one thing for certain. I won’t be a hairdresser after I finish my career,’’ Geale said.
DONATE TO THE WESTS TIGERS TEAM PAGE
Winger David Nofoaluma got in the spirit of the promotion by having his hair sprayed orange.
Wests Tigers Captain Robbie Farah was joined by his front row partners in Aaron Woods and Keith Galloway in taking to the razor to Club Media Manager Wayne Cousins.
Farah did a fine job with the head shave but the media manager’s eyebrows are a little lighter and shorter now after being pinned down by the burly props.
Wests Tigers wish to thank the friendly, professional hairdressers from Toni & Guy for volunteering their services as well as the great crew from The Leukaemia Foundation.
The Club also like to thank BINGO Skip Bins for their generous donation as well as those supporters who have donated too. More than $1200 has already been raised in just a few days. Donations can still be made on our team page with proceeds going to The Leukaemia Foundation.
World’s Greatest Shave runs from March 14-17, 2013, but shaves can take place throughout the year. The Foundation encourages registrants to shave their head or colour their hair to raise funds to support the 11,500 Australians that will be diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphomas, myeloma and other related blood disorders this year. There are currently 50,000 people living with blood cancer.
Wests Tigers are on the lookout for members of the Club’s 2014 Senior Cheersquad and will be holding auditions next Monday.
Wests Tigers are getting into the Christmas spirit, launching a promotion for new and existing Members.
