On Friday 15 March, Stratford brigade hosted a fundraiser for Shave for a Cure. Stratford Captain Mike Sears organised the fundraiser to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation.

We can now update the original story (The Stratford shave down) with some great news.

Eight brave captains decided to lose or colour their locks in the name of charity:

Mike Sears (Stratford), Wayne Goddard (Clydebank), Ron Graham (Maffra), David Read (Perry
Bridge), Mathew Sim (Boisdale), Mark Whitehurst (Newry), Geoff Lynch (Coongulla) and Stratford fire fighter Darren Rafferty and Ron Clancy (Stratford Lions Club) all shaved their heads. Sale Captain Doug Brack went home with brightly coloured hair for the cause.

A final total of $12,939.45 was raised for the Leukaemia Foundation. Congratulations to everybody involved for helping to raise so much money for such a good cause.

Mike wants some identities to give it a go next year so look out because you may be tapped on the shoulder!
