A Deniliquin TAFE World’s Greatest Shave event raised an impressive $2884 when it was held at the end of June.
Deniliquin Lions president Colin Dowell presented a cheque to TAFE on Thursday last week.
Mr Dowell and fellow Lion Dick Teunon joined the shave, with the Lions Club kicking off the local Leukaemia Foundation fundraising by donating $1000 for each of them.
About 40 people attended the event at the Lions Community Market in the Waring Gardens to watch Mr Dowell and Mr Teunon shave their heads, along with several TAFE students and teachers.

Mr Sievers said the students learnt a list of skills, including organisation, teamwork, being tolerant of other views and opinions, interacting with the community and more.
He said the TAFE class would like to thank Deniliquin Lions, the Pastoral Times, 2QN, local businesses, family and friends, the Naponda Hospital Auxiliary, hairdresser Simone Learmonth and ‘‘the entire community’’.
