Christine Learmonth prepares to have her hair cut by Simone Learmonth.

Earlier this year Deniliquin primary school students Olivia McCallum and Olivia Manzin chose to cut their luscious long hair in return for donations to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.

They also donated their off-cuts to help make patient wigs for in-treatment cancer patients.

The girls raised close to $500, and now South teacher’s aid Christine Henson is contributing to the cause.

Ms Henson will chop her locks for charity on Monday at 1pm during the school’s lunch period with the assistance of hairdresser Simone Learmonth.

‘‘I’ve got more than enough hair ... the last time I cut it short was five years ago,’’ Ms Henson said.

‘‘Anything to help fight cancer is worth it.

‘‘I’m just doing my bit. There are people worse off than me and I can help them.

‘‘Any donations would be greatly appreciated.’’

Donations to this worthwhile cause can be made at the South School front office in Sloane St, or contact the school on 5881 2045.
