For most 13-year-old girls, the idea of chopping their hair off would fill them with dread.
For Rosa Smith (left) and Kenzie Bennett (both 13) the hair shaving was a selfless act for a good cause. The St John’s Girls’ School pupils raised $2823.50 for the Southland Charity Hospital.
Rosa’s hair was long enough to be donated to make a wig for a cancer patient.
The hair shaving was completed by deputy principal Nathan Hughes and Kenzie’s dad, Jason.
