Nige is shaving his head. Why? Because I told him Canberra’s Domestic Violence Crisis service needed our help to raise money. He made the decision in less than 10 seconds.

I don’t think I’ve ever been prouder of my mate.

Nige joins ABC Host and DVCS Champion Adam Shirley, DVCS board members, ACT policing, ICON Water and a host of LEGENDS lining up to help the cause.

It’s a cause close to my heart, I’ve been Champion with DVCS for the last 6 years. With the rough year everyone went through in 2020, demand for DVCS services skyrocketed while opportunities to raise money to help fund said services declined.

Here are the details of The DVCS Shave For The Brave. We’d love your support. Kristen x
