FUNDRAISING: Max McFarlane hopes to raise $2000 before having his head shaved.

He has already raised about $800. Max said he wanted to participate in this year’s shave because so many people died from leukaemia and cancer each day.

“And I’m going to have to get a haircut some time, so I thought this would be a very good idea,” Max said. “I think it will be a very good step in finding a cure for it. So far I’ve got 40 per cent of (the funds).”

Max’s mother Ashley agreed her son was ‘on the ball’ with his fundraising.

“I only had to register him, that’s all” Ashley said.

“He’s been wanting to do it since last year, but he missed it last year. So he’s been waiting and waiting, and growing his hair since Christmas.

“He makes us very proud.”

Anyone who would like to support Max by making a donation to The Leukaemia Foundation and the World’s Greatest Shave they can go online to: http://my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/maxmcfarlane.
