SHE may have hair that has taken years to reach this length but Bec Crombie will soon shave it off for a good cause.
While the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave may not be until March, she has already started fundraising for her big shave on March 14.
“I have known people with cancer and lost people and family to cancer,” Mrs Crombie said.
Mrs Crombie said becoming a mother to two-year-old Enzo has inspired her to be proactive and help other people.
“If something happened to him [Enzo] I’d want someone to do something this great,” she said.
“Becoming a mum two years ago has driven me to want to help find a cure for blood-related cancer.”
Mrs Crombie admits she is nervous about losing her locks but said raising funds for a good cause makes it worthwhile.
“I love my hair and love doing it so for someone like me to shave their hair is a big thing,” she said.
So far Mrs Crombie has raised $500 through 16 collection tins in stores across Orange and through donations at her work at Ashcroft’s Supa IGA on Peisley Street.
“I wanted to raise as much as I can,” she said.
