Local Valmar and Gundagai celebrity, Damien Booby celebrated his 40th birthday in a unique way on Gundagai Show day recently.
He decided he wanted to help the local charities that support kids, so he fundraised over $3,000 by having his head shaved in front of a large and vocal crowd of friends, family and supporters. Gundagai hairdresser, Jill Jones, did the shearing, and after he was clipped, Damo thanked everybody who supported him, with a special mention to his parents Frank and Irene. He then invited everyone to enjoy a huge birthday cake.
