Even those in remote communities are doing their bit in the fight against cancer.

Students at Looma School, 120km south-east of Derby, shaved Sergeant Tom Litherland’s hair last week in an effort to raise money for the World’s Greatest Shave.

The idea came about when Sgt Litherand’s 11-year-old son Riley saw an advertisement on TV and suggested it would be a good way for him to raise some money for the Leukaemia Foundation.

“It was all just a bit of fun,” Sgt Litherland said.

After having his own head shaved, Sgt Litherland helped to spray paint other children’s hair at the school.

Riley raised over $400 for the World’s Greatest Shave.
