Great OffShore Shave at Church Point!
It may come as a shock
to some but I am hosting a fundraiser for the “World’s Greatest Shave”,
Leukaemia Foundation at Church Point on the Friday 14th March!!
Knowing friends and their loved ones who have battled a type of
cancer, I wanted to help in some way.
There will be a BBQ, a raffle and live music...., not to mention the
shaving of my head and am inviting anyone to join me, donate or
volunteer on the day!
I have created a Team Name - "Offshore Shave", hoping that our Offshore
residents will join me to raise money for Leukaemia Foundation. You can
join or donate by going straight to http://my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/OffshoreShave
or the Website http://www.worldsgreatestshave.com/ and typing in:
"Offshore shave" or "Amy Roberts".
I was also thinking if any of the artists could donate a art piece for
the raffle on the day as a prize.
The offshore community are the most giving, supportive group of people
I have come across and it will be an amazing afternoon of shaving fun.
People have a choice of either shaving their head, legs, chest or even
just dying your hair a funky colour. I’m sure we will be very
The donations are tax deductible and I have a tax receipt I can out to
anyone if needed.
Whoever digs deep should know that the donations will go toward
research to find better treatments and cures for leukaemia, lymphoma
and myeloma, as well as supporting families when they need it most.
We are trying to raise $3000 so I hope to hear from you soon.
What is the best way to notify and ask the community for their support?
Can you also inform me if there is any other event that may clash with

Pittwater Mayor Jacqui Townsend said the Coastal Ambassadors program

clubs and other community groups to become ‘ambassadors’ for the local
marine environment,” she said.
Natural Environment & Education Manager Mark Beharrell said surf
club members across the northern beaches were invited to come and learn
more about their coastal environment.
“It is a great way to learn about our coastline and how global changes

conservation message with other members of their club and the wider
