Eloise Lydford and Karen Barnes made more than $1500 simply by getting people to sponsor them to get their heads shaved.

ELOISE Lydford was grateful for sunny warm weather yesterday.

She and her work-mate from Bursons Auto Parts, Karen Barnes, were particularly exposed to the elements, and fearful of an early cold snap, after shaving their heads on Thursday afternoon.

"We wanted to shine the spotlight on cancer and on women who lose their hair as a part of the treatment process," Eloise said.

"I was actually a very liberating thing to do and I'm delighted with the support we got from friends, family, workmates and even total strangers."

That support had yesterday translated into more than $1500 in donations to the Luekaemia Foundation

"Anyone who wants to top up that total can go to www.worldsgreatestshave.com and search for our names and make an online pledge."

Dozens of locals will soon be looking as trimmed as Eloise and Karen as Shave for a Cure events kick into full gear this weekend and next week.
