TO SHAVE, colour or wax, that is the question.

Fundraisers in next month's World's Greatest Shave can choose to take off all their hair, merely colour their locks or any variation in-between.

Ipswich Jets Leagues Club team leader Kate Desborough will be bald after her first-time shave and is a little afraid of the outcome.

"My biggest fear is that my grandchildren will be frightened," she said.

Her team of four will hold the public shave at the North Ipswich club on March 14 at 3.30pm.

"We want anyone to come on down, donate and have fun," Ms Desborough said.

"We'd like Ipswich businesses to get behind the Jets' team.

"I set a personal fundraising goal of $10,000. I've raised $6000 on my own.

"I think $20,000 for the team is a realistic goal."

Ms Desborough knows the heartache of having family members and friends with leukaemia.

"My father-in-law has leukaemia at the moment. I've seen a four-year-old child pass away with leukaemia, nearly 20 years ago. It was awful and impacted our family."

Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale will be doing the shave at Jets, under the guidance of hairdresser Gaye Anderson.

World's Greatest Shave will take place from March 14-17.
