Sharlette Bourke is half way towards accomplishing her hair-raising mission. 

The 12-year-old decided last year to sacrifice her beautiful brunette locks for sick Australians with Leukaemia. 

Before the big cut on March 17, she hopes to have raised more than $10,000 for the World’s Greatest Shave.

Her mission aims to help researchers find a cure for blood cancers and disorders. 

A cake sale, Bunnings barbecue, Pitch Perfect 3 premier tickets and community donations raised more than $5000 thus far.

Sharlette now hopes a trivia night at the Wagga Rules Club on February 24, will help boost her funds even further. 

Tables of eight need to be pre-booked at $10 per person or for $80 for a table. 

The Sturt Public School student said she was “mostly excited” but “a little nervous” about the impending chop. 

Sharlette’s mother, Natalie Bourke said no matter what her daughter raised, she and her husband were impressed and proud.
