Nell is cutting her hair off

Making A Difference

Big thanks to young fundraiser Eleanor (Nell), who raised close to $2000 in support of Bowel Cancer Australia through her big "hair chop" to help others!
"For a long time I have wanted to shave my hair off. And then I thought I could donate my hair to make wigs for people who have cancer, and maybe raise money too. My Aunty Georgina’s best friend Leisa, died from bowel cancer just before Christmas in 2015. All the kids were happy because it was Christmas time, but Gina was really, really sad. Leisa also has a little daughter who is only seven years old. That’s not much younger than me. Mum wasn’t so sure that shaving all my hair off was a great idea. She was a bit worried I wouldn't like my new look! So after a lot of discussion, we decided I could cut my hair really, really short and still donate it to make a wig. By becoming an Every Day Hero, I am hoping to also raise some money for Bowel Cancer Australia. I would be very sad if this happened to someone I love, and I feel sad for Leisa and her family and friends. She was only 47."

Gracie makes a difference

CONGRATULATIONS to 8 year old Gracie, who did an absolutely fabulous job supporting Bowel Cancer Australia through her annual fundraiser. Gracie chooses a different charity or cause to raise money for each year. “This year, I chose bowel cancer because my Great Poppy died of bowel cancer before I was born. It makes me very sad that I never got to meet him!!! I asked all my family, friends and my grade 2 teacher, to donate towards the cause. I raised $90 altogether. I really hope this helps other people”. Thank you Gracie for your generosity and for helping making a difference!
