It could have been a
hair-raising experience, but blind man Simon Fogarty's
colleagues were in safe hands yesterday.
The novel fundraiser by the University of Otago IT team for
tomorrow's Daffodil Day raised at least $800 and some
proceeds were still to be counted, organiser Rochelle
Using an electric razor, Mr Fogarty shaved the beards and
heads of IT service desk colleagues David Steer and James
Physics department manager Sandy Wilson was given a mohawk,
with a bit of assistance from Dunedin hairdresser James
Gibbs. It was then spray-painted orange, to the delight of
Mr Steer and Mr Inger said they had been nervous before the
shave, but it was not as daunting as they had feared.
