Jewellers take a shine to Greatest Shave

HEATH Lyons Jewellers in Eaglehawk will hold a fundraising event this morning for the World’s Greatest Shave.

Co-owner- manager Amber Lyons will shave her head and hairless husband Heath, who has grown and bleached his hair, will dye it pink.

“He has to keep it that way for at least a couple of weeks because it’s no fun if he shaves it off straight away!” Mrs Lyons said.

Courtney's Quest: Giving life after death

She looked perfect, just as she always did to her mum.

A tiny scratch on her head - the only sign that something was amiss.

She cuddled her Pooh Bear, her favourite, and slept peacefully as the machines kept her alive.

Only hours before, a sunny day at Lake Eppalock beckoned.

A boat trip with a friend. Something Courtney Keast, 12, had done several times before.

Now, her mum Jodie held her limp hand and was asked whether her young daughter wanted to become an organ donor.
