Manitou Australia staff and customers put their locks on the line last week and raised more than $2,500 for the Leukaemia Foundation. Charlie Schwerkolt, Manitou national equipment managing director, said 15 people had their heads shaved and 20 coloured their hair to participate in the foundation's World's Greatest Shave to Care and Cure campaign. The Leukaemia Foundation is an Australian, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the care and cure of patients with blood and bone marrow cancers. People who agree to have their heads shaved or coloured are sponsored to raise the funds.
