Galloway helps give homelessness the chop

Wests Tigers prop Keith Galloway has always been a big man with a kind heart.


An enforcer on the field, Galloway enjoys helping those less fortunate and often goes about in quietly. If there is a worthy cause to support, Galloway is more than happy to back the charity.


It was no different at Concord Oval on Tuesday when Galloway decided to shave his head (again) to help promote the 'Wesley Haircut for Homelessness' event to be held in Martin Place on Tuesday, August 6.


Wesley Mission will be attempting a Guinness World Record with the most number of haircuts, helping to raise vital awareness and funds to help Australias homeless.


To be held between 9 am and 5 pm, Wesley Mission will attempt to break the current world haircut record, delivering more than 359 haircuts by a team of ten in just eight hours.


Hairdressers from Just Cuts were at Concord Oval to help trim up Galloway, Liam Fulton and David Nofoaluma.


"It is all about helping the Wesley Mission give homelessness the chop,'' Galloway said.


"The statistics on the amount of homeless people in Australia is alarming.

Wesley Mission cares for 600 adults and children each night through its homeless services.


"Apart from just providing a bed, they offer support services like counselling and employment to help people get back on their feet.


"I couldn't believe it when I read that around 100,000 Australians are homeless of which 17 per cent are under the age of 12. One third of all homeless people are families.


"I encourage Wests Tigers supporters to help get behind the Wesley Mission and support this great charity event. I hope they can beat the world record and more importantly, raise plenty of money to help the homeless."
