Mullet set to go

COMMUNITY-involved Broadford resident David Wilson will shave his long-time mullet, a hairstyle his own children have never seen him without.

Mr Wilson said he was participating in the World’s Greatest Shave to support children who were getting sick.

“I’ve got seven grandchildren, I’ve been involved in junior cricket, football, netball, basketball, and I just hate seeing kids getting crook, so I thought I’d pursue this for a change – plus I need a haircut,” he laughed.

“I’ve always been involved with young kids around the 12 or 13-year-old mark.

“I’d hate to see one of my grandchildren get it. At least I’m making a change. The support’s been good, everyone’s been good about it.

“I’ve had a mullet for about 45 years, the only time I didn’t was when I was 18, but I still had long hair. I’ll get the old beanie out. It’s a change.”

Mr Wilson said he had well-surpassed his goal of $2000 and was expecting more donations on the day. Mr Wilson will have his hair shaved by a hairdresser at Mac’s Irish Pub in Kilmore on Sunday at 2.30pm. Any further donations are welcome.
