Jed’s hair-raising fundraiser


Arrowtowner Jed Crawford braved having his head shaved by his sister Zoe, 13, in honour of his dad, Keith, last Friday.

‘The Big Shave’ was the 10-year-old’s way of raising funds for a Wellington clinic to test treatments for the brain tumour, glioblastoma, which claimed Keith’s life six months ago.

Altogether he raised an amazing $25,665, including $700 from a ‘crazy hair day’ held at his Arrowtown School, also last Friday.

The shave-off, held at his parents’ pub, The Fork and Tap, was witnessed by about 150 people, including many kids, and was held on the day Keith would have turned 50.
