Deniliquin business owner Rod 'Chappy' Chapman will shave his head and face, and possibly his body, to raise money for cancer research.By Cass Savellis
While he’s not keen to lose the winter coat across his back, arms and chest, Deni Sports Centre owner Rod ‘Chappy’ Chapman is losing the ‘greys’ from his head in the name of cancer.
A happy Chappy was all smiles last Friday as White Lion Hotel publican Ray Allsopp (pictured) showed the public how he plans to shear his patron at the pub on Friday, March 22.
Chappy is calling for local donations to see him with no hair, with all money raised going to the Leukaemia Foundation as part of the annual World’s Greatest Shave.
The sports store owner said he was continuing a friend’s tradition ‘‘by braving the shave’’.
‘‘I’ve lost a few friends to cancer, and I think more people really need to get involved in this type of research.
‘‘I’ve been thinking about doing it for while, so this year I thought, why not?’’
On the night of the shave, Chappy will hold an auction and the highest bidder will get the privilege of shaving his head and beard (maybe even chest).
‘‘I’ve started growing my beard again. A few people have even been asking if I’ll shave my chest .
To make donations, see Chappy at Deni Sports Centre or Ray Allsopp at the White Lion Hotel.
