Aspire Early Education director Archi Patel goes bald for a cause, raising over $2000

Archi Patel, Director of Aspire Early Education and Kindergarten Cranbourne West, has gone bald for a cause, shaving her head to raise over $2,000 for the Leukaemia Foundation.

 

Ms Patel has never dyed or drastically changed her hair before, so the shave was a huge change and act of bravery as part of the World’s Greatest Shave fundraising event in early July. 

 

She was joined by two other members of the early learning community, and said that while nerves almost got the better of her, she stayed strong to overcome her fears and raise money for the important cause. 

 

Aspire Events coordinator Zoe Nestoriwskyj said she was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from the community on the day.

 

Ms Patel is “very family oriented” and chose the Leukaemia Foundation to fund raise for because she wanted to give back to families and children, raising just over half of its $5,000 target through a door prize, raffle and the shave.

 

Aspire Education’s head office will match the funds raised by the service. Contributions to the fundraiser can still be made using this link
