PRIMARY school student Olivia Wallace is showcasing her love for her best friend in a very special way next week.
Olivia will cut her hair above her shoulders next Wednesday during lunchtime at her school, Wangaratta Primary School, to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation.
Although she has wanted to participate in the World’s Greatest Shave for some time, she decided to wait until her best friend, Lily Wadley, came back to school.
Lily returned to school part time this year after spending 11 months in Melbourne receiving treatment for leukaemia.
The eight year olds, who have been best friends since they met in prep, used to video chat frequently when they couldn’t catch up at school to ensure they never missed anything.
