Cooper raises $1500 for children's charities | Photos, Video

With a fresh new hairdo and having raised $1500 for charity, a Tathra Public School pupil should be feeling pretty good about himself.

Cooper Finnegan had his head shaved on Friday as part of a fundraiser for the Starlight Children’s Foundation’s wish granting and the Children’s Cancer Institute.  

People bought ping pong balls for a raffle with the winner choosing what haircut the Year 3 pupil would get.

It was won by his family and his three-year-old cousin chose a mohawk with spiderweb detailing, a style cut by Karen Levido at Bliss Stylists in Tathra. 

“It feels weird,” Cooper said after his shave.

“There’s no hair dangling everywhere!” 

There is still time to donate to Cooper's fundraiser. To do so contact his mother Jo Heman on or call 6494 5975.
