Over $5000 has been raised for the Leukaemia Foundation due to Cloncurry residents taking part in the World's Greatest Shave.
Hosting the event in Cloncurry for the third consecutive year, Sharni Hall said this year's event was well attended with many locals and school children donating to the cause.
"Each year I usually raise between $5000 to $6000 and this year was no different," Ms Hall said.
"It was great to see so many locals including students getting behind the cause."
Residents shaved, waxed and coloured their hair at two events; The Post Office Hotel and the Cloncurry State School.
"At PO we had beard shavers, belly waxing, shaved heads and Stephen Cortis raised his own money to shave his head," Ms Hall said.
"At the school we had students and teachers colouring their hair with wild hair styles and even had a few hair cuts and people shave."
Eleven year old, Heidi, shaved her strawberry-blonde hair to help raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.
"In my life I've had one of my friends pass away and others who have got sick," Heidi said.
"I wanted to show them that I care and want to help make a difference."
Ms Hall said to have such young people understand the cause to cut their hair was amazing.
"When young children also tell their reasons behind why they want to get involved it is nice to hear that kids understand and are aware of what they are doing," Ms Hall said.
"The whole reason that I wanted to do this event was because when I was 15 my cousin, who was only a year older then me, passed away from leukaemia.
"When something like that happens and it is so close, I thought that this was the least I could do and to see the kids come to school wearing their crazy hair or shaving and raising money was definitely a great response."
Ms Hall plans to host the event again next year.
