Mrs Josephine Low, corporate operational director of Sunflower Childcare Group, was one of 30 staff members of the childcare company to have their heads shaved in a show of support for young cancer patients. The Children's Cancer Foundation's signature Hair for Hope event was part of a family day carnival held at Nee Soon East Community Club yesterday to raise funds for the cause. Mrs Low, who had her head shaved by Nee Soon GRC MP Lee Bee Wah, said the childcare group hopes to "instil the value of compassion and social responsibility in the pre-school children", for them to "better empathise with the plight of children with cancer". To date, the Sunflower Childcare Group has raised close to $30,000 in support of the foundation.
