The wait is finally over for siblings Renee Beehag and Tim and Simon Maher, who will go under the razor for a Deniliquin Oncology Unit fundraiser this Sunday.
Simon will be freed from his beard while Renee and Tim will lose their hair, with the event being held at the Deniliquin Bakery from 11am.
Local band Northwesters will be performing, which includes Tim’s son Alex Maher as the drummer.
Bakery mascot Petey Pie will be entertaining the crowd and handing out give-aways for children, and 40 cents from every pie sold on the day will be added to the total funds raised.
The shave is expected to get under way about noon, with Oncology Unit nurses available to talk about the local facility beforehand.
‘‘All are welcome to come along and watch the shave,’’ Renee said.
‘‘It should be a great day and we thank all of the people and businesses who have supported us so far.’’
People can donate on the day, drop cash in tins at various local businesses or call Renee on 0427
