Larry Greentree is known in Paxton as the kind of bloke who would always do something for someone.
He worked six days a week as an in-demand plant operator and truck driver, digging dams and building roads on properties around the Hunter Valley.
But this came to a halt on April 28 this year when Mr Greentree, 58, suffered a massive stroke.
He spent more than three months in hospital and is still undergoing intense physiotherapy and speech therapy.
A benefit day will be held at Paxton Hotel on September 24 to help Mr Greentree with his rehabilitation expenses.
His nine-year-old granddaughter Montanna offered to cut off her waist-length hair on the day to raise money for her Pop, and the hair will be turned into a wig for a sick child.
Montanna’s brother Eathan, seven, will have his head shaved at the event.
The benefit day will run from 12pm to 11pm with a jumping castle, yabby races, chainsaw carving demonstration and live music.
