o The kindest cut: Jess Moor is shedding her locks to help find a cure for cancer this Saturday following the Australian Celtic Festival street parade.
As the Australian Celtic Festival gears up, local mum Jess Moor is planning to lop off her long locks this Saturday, May 3, in support of the Leukaemia Foundation’s research towards a cancer cure.
Aiming to raise more than $1000, Ms Moor said she will be going under the barber’s scissors at the front of the Coffee Incident Café on Grey Street this weekend, immediately following the festival parade.
“It is something I have always wanted to do,” she said.
“And now is a really good time to do it.”
Calling for locals and visitors to donate their spare change to the cause, Ms Moor said she will be on Grey Street from 8.30am with a barbecue breakfast donated by local business houses and all proceeds to be put towards the fundraising goal.
Already banking approximately $500 towards the cause, Ms Moor said local personality Tamara Ferguson has made a significant contribution and has won the opportunity to wield the clippers on the day.
“Why should I be so precious about my hair?” Ms Moor said.
“Mine will grow back and I want to support those people who are suffering.”
With plans to invest in a healthy collection of beanies for the winter, Ms Moor is already well into the fundraising efforts in the lead up to the big event.
