Having their heads shaved next to planes arriving and
departing is an experience Queenstown air traffic controllers
Ben Macmillan and Andrew Turner can now tick off.
The two represented the Queenstown air traffic control
tower's contribution to Child Cancer and in supporting
Dunedin controller Kate Lindsey, who has alopecia totalis,
which results in total hair loss.
Mr. Lindsey also had her long hair shaved off on Saturday, in
Dunedin, along with six Dunedin colleagues, who either had
their heads shaved or legs waxed.
Six colleagues also shaved in Christchurch and two in
Airport staff watched as Mr Macmillan and Mr Turner were
shaved by Whitney Findlay, of Milford Sound Scenic Flights.
Come early January, 23 Airways staff, Mr. Lindsey's husband
and a friend in Christchurch will have either shaved their
heads or waxed their legs as part of the campaign.
So far, $4000 has been raised and money from donation buckets
is yet to be counted.
Donations can be made up until January 13 via http://fundraiseonline.co.nz/kateandfriends/
