Master Barber and event organiser Mike Helwe from Barber Industries Kotara spoke about the success of the weekend:

"This weekend we tried to raise money for The Kids With Cancer Foundation Australia, we offered water, cool drinks, muffins, and $10 hair cuts from the team here at Barber Industries Kotara. It is rewarding for us to be able to help, it is for those families with kids who are sick and that can be very tough, so it really is for a great cause. The event wen’t well, we raised much needed funds and we thank everyone who participated and everyone who donated."
