Dural First National is throwing its support behind this year’s World’s Greatest Shave charity, by “shaving off” some of the commission from sales made between March 18 and August 5 to boost funding for the vital research into finding a cure for blood cancers such leukaemia.
Senior sales agent Adrian Rovere has shown further commitment to the cause by “taking one for the team” and having his luscious locks shaved off during a gala event hosted by Glenorie Bakery.
It was a real family affair with Adrian’s daughter Courtney doing the honours, whilst bakery owner Rob Pirina had great pleasure in shaving the head of his general manager Adrian Membrick.
“We apparently created World’s Greatest Shave history by being the only two Adrians in the country to have their heads shaved simultaneously,” said Adrian who lamented the facthis good deed meant the cancelling of several modelling contracts.
Adrian said the early response to the initiative has been excellent and given everyone is touched by cancer in some way, shape or form he expected the response to gain momentum as we moved through the 20-week donation period.
“We made it 20 weeks to align it with the fact this year is the World’s Greatest Shave’s 20th anniversary.”
Adrian said he hoped that Dural First National’s involvement with the World’s Greatest Shave is adopted across the First National group which numbers almost 500 in both Australia and New Zealand.
