Taking it all off for charity

More than $15,000 was raised for the Leukaemia Foundation when the World’s Greatest Shave came to the Goonellabah Tavern recently.

Mayor Jenny Dowell kicked off the night by dying her hair pink, followed by hotel managers John and Nadine Van Arendonk, who were brave enough to shave.

The Goonellabah Tavern cricket side took it all off and raised about $2000.

Altogether about 20 heads were shaved and 15 dyed. Next year they hope to make it $20,000.
