Australia defender Aivi Luik made a pledge a while ago. If she could raise $30,000 (just over £17,000) in support of her brother Noah, who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer, she would shave her hair.
It took the 37-year-old just four days to raise that total, and so after the second game between Australia and New Zealand in Canberra on Tuesday, Football Ferns star Rebekah Stott, a survivor of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, produced the clippers.
Luik has now raised over $38,000 for the Mark Hughes Foundation. Further donations can be made here: https://challenge.markhughesfoundation.com.au/page/for-noa
