Early leaning centre staff getting chop

COMMITTED to making a positive impact beyond their walls, the Homebush head office of Young Academics Early Learning Centre (YA), transformed into a hairdressing salon last week when staff stepped up to shed their locks for charity as part of the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave.

YA partner, Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs were also on hand to support the professional hairdressers who were entrusted with the honours to cut and colour team members’ hair – and collect longer locks to donate for wig-making for those undertaking cancer treatment.
New Bulldogs recruit Connor Tracey supported the cause by having his hair spray-painted blue and purple by teammate Reed Mahoney.
Former Bulldogs and NSW Blues star Josh Reynolds also worked his hairdressing magic, re-fashioning rugby league great Terry Lamb’s hair into his signature 1980s mullet before completing the shave, and cutting 46 centimetres from the formerly long locks of YA employee Madison Langworthy.
YA Managing Director James Kazzi said they were proud to provide a meaningful opportunity for their YA team members and Bulldogs partners to come together to make a difference.
“We are in the business of providing quality care to support families and children so it goes without saying that getting behind a charity helping those who are unwell, including children, is a cause that’s close to our hearts,” he said.
