The two Olivias pictutred before the big chop.

Olivia McCallum and Olivia Manzin have donated lengths of their long, luscious locks to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.

Inspired by Monique Borg, who cut off 40cm of her hair to give to a child with cancer, both girls had close to 30cm lopped to be made into wigs for children battling cancer.

Mother Janet Manzin said ‘‘the girls were excited’’ and that both families were ‘‘proud they’re doing this and thinking of other children’’.

As well as donating their hair, the girls have been fundraising money to donate to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.

‘‘We hope to raise $500 to go towards buying equipment that children will need while undergoing treatment,’’ Mrs Manzin said.

Audrey McCallum said they had already started thinking about ‘‘a bigger and better hair donation for the same time next year.’’

The girls thanked Simone Learmonth from Vogue Hairdressing for their new hair styling.

To donate to this worthy cause, contact Audrey on 58823366 or Janet 58823528.
