Dad Sticks it to cancer

AT first glance ‘Sticks’, as he prefers to be known, is the sort of bloke you might allow his fair share of bar space.

But a quick conversation with the Stockyard Hotel regular would alter every first impression.

The compassionate local feels strongly about supporting those battling cancer.

“There would be nothing worse than not seeing your children grow up,” he explained.

As the father of a four-year-old son, and having known his share of family and friends fighting the Big C, Sticks has worked out his life’s priorities.

“We need to do all we can to find a cure for cancer,” Sticks said.

That is why the Warwick father will be putting his locks on the line tomorrow at the Stockyard’s World’s Greatest Shave night.

Organised by Stockyard Hotel bar worker and Leukaemia Foundation ambassador Bec Munro, the night starts at 6pm with a focus on fundraising for a cause.

“It is important the community gets behind the fight to find a cure for cancer,” Mrs Munro said.

At least two locals have signed up to lose their locks, while others have agreed to a colour makeover by the affable barmaid.

“Anyone else who is keen is most welcome to join us, just come down tomorrow,” she said.

“Butch Collier will be playing and all funds raised go towards the World’s Greatest Cure campaign.”
