In its second year running, The Clip, organised by the Service Leadership Committee has once again made a significant impact in support of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA). Forty-five Australian men are diagnosed with prostate cancer daily and this event aimed to raise awareness and much needed funds for the Foundation.

On Wednesday 5 June, 24 students volunteered to have a buzz cut in solidarity with those affected by prostate cancer. Their efforts raised an impressive $13,284 which will go towards life-saving prostate cancer research, nursing and support to impacted families across Australia. PCFA Community Engagement Manager, Jason Castle, attended the event and accepted the cheque on behalf of the foundation.

Hair clippings from The Clip were collected and donated to Sustainable Salons. They will be used to create hair booms to help rid our oceans from oil spills that endanger bird and marine life. Craig Hislop from Sustainable Salons attended the event and kindly assisted by reaching out to his network of hairdressers to assist on the day. The talented teams from C'ba Hair, Salis Studio and Get Goddess Hair & Beauty performed the highly anticipated buzz cuts.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who was involved and has supported this great initiative.
