The Leukaemia Foundation eventis celebrating its 20thyear in , having grown into one of the most recognisable annual fundraising campaigns.

People willshave or colour their hair across in support of thosediagnosed with a blood cancer like leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

Funds raised go to practical and emotional support fordiagnosed families, as well asresearch into blood cancer and related disorders.

Ms McGregor said she was apprehensive beforeloosing her locks.

“I’m very nervous, I’ve got butterflies doing somersaults in my stomach,” she said before the cut.

“I’ve always been a long-haired girl.

“My friend said I might look like Demi Moore as GI Jane…Hopefully I’ll rock the look.”

Waratah Public held a ‘crazy hair day’ to helpMs McGregor’s donations reach over $3,000.
