Banora students chop of locks for a cure

ST JAMES Primary School students Jarrod Houben and Callum Sutton farewelled their luxurious locks for the World’s Greatest Shave on Monday.

Titans player Luke O’Dwyer, a former student of the Banora Point school, turned up to show his support for the boys.

Mr O’Dwyer said the cause was close to his heart after he lost his brother, Ryan, to leukemia in 1998.

He has since used his success as a sporting star to raise awareness of the disease and visits the school each year.

Jarrod raised $1100 and Callum $190.
