On the day there was a sausage sizzle, hair colouring, drinks and themed cookies, which encouraged members of the community to donate generously.
With a target of $4000, Sarah and Chloe started the day off hopeful and ended up receiving nearly $3000 in donations.
The girls’ final donations took them well over their target to a final total
The support that Sarah and Chloe received was overwhelming.
“Small country towns are the best venues for these events because the community gets behind it and people genuinely care for one another,” Chloe said.
The girls were overwhelmed with the local support on the day.
“Particularly, we would like to thank our hairdressers on the day, local businesses that donated goods and, most especially, the individuals who donated so generously their time as volunteers and their hard-earned money for this worthy cause,” Sarah said.
Moree Secondary College also got behind the teacher and student with out-of-uniform days, a sausage sizzle and individual donations.
With this support, the Leukaemia Foundation can continue to provide travel and accommodation assistance for suffers of blood cancers and, ultimately, search for a cure for this debilitating disease.
“Our hair is growing back and we have a little more hair now, but it was all worth it,” Sarah said.
