THE Tweed River High School students and teachers have come together to raise money for Shave for a Cure.

Students and teachers braved the clippers to shave their hair as part of the Leukaemia Foundations biggest fundraiser on Friday.

"The kids have been raising money for the last three weeks by rattling buckets at the front gate, going to down to recess and lunch collecting money," Mr Swaddle said.

Mr Swaddle said before the big event, where 12 teachers and one student shaved their head or arms, the school had raised more than $1000.

"Like I said to the kids, while we have a target of $5,000 every dollar helps," he said.

"We're just happy to make whatever we can on the day."
