All off, below: Kaipara College student Kayla Erceg only ever trimmed her locks but now her shaved hair will be used for wigs for cancer patients. Shedding her locks for the first time helped Kaipara College year 11 student Kayla Erceg raise $4128 for the Child Cancer Foundation. Five others also took part in the shave-off held at Parakai s Expressions Hair and Beauty. As part of the charity s Shave Your Lid For a Kid campaign, it was the first time the 15-year-old had cut her hair apart from trims. A mufti day was also run at the school to raise funds. The largest single donation of $500 came from Mobico. Inspired to help SPCA Riverhead fundraiser: Sheridan Rapley, left, and Josh Hubbers raise money for the SPCA in the pet enclosure. SPCA sniffer: Oreo the kunekune pig is popular for his fundraising nous and personality. By RANI TIMOTI The first of many fundra- isers will be keeping Riverhead residents and visitors busy. Dubbed Gift of Life , resident Rose Davison says all proceeds go back to community groups and charities like St John, the Salvation Army and West Auck- land Hospice. Mrs Davison has been battling cervical cancer for 30 years and says inspiration for the event came from groups who have helped her through personal hardship. The first one attracted up to 300 people at the memorial hall area with funds going to the SPCA. There were stall holders featuring bric-a- brac to homemade crafts and jewellery. An animal area was popular with children who could pet and feed a lamb, kunekune pig and bichon pomeranian dog. Mrs Davison was impressed by the gener- osity of Riverhead, Kumeu and Huapai busi- nesses which donated items for raffles. Along with raffles, people could win prizes by answering quizzes about the day s event. We d like to see this event happening on a monthly basis, Mrs Davison says, with the next one due next month. Riverhead groups like the Scout den and the historic citizens hall will also benefit. Mrs Davison also organised two more fundraisers for the SPCA, along with the Riverhead event, notching up about $1000. One was at Animates, Westgate where Oreo the kunekune pig and Ocean the lamb were popular. At the Kumeu Rotary Christmas Parade, Oreo also stole the show when he squealed into police cars, entertaining the drivers and crowds. Mrs Davison thanks all the businesses that provided raffle and quiz items.
