The Shavaton event at Key West was very popular. The Krugersdorp Lions had to go into top gear in order to attend to people who wanted to take part in the event.

People paid R50 to get their hair shaved off or to get their heads sprayed with vibrant colours. It was great fun and we could see that people really enjoyed themselves.

The Key West shopping mall donated a number of hairpieces for the use of people who had lost their hair due to chemotherapy.

Here is an extract from the Shavathon website:

CANSA Shavathon has proved to be a nation-building event that unites young and old, rural communities and city slickers, in fact, the inhabitants of all 9 provinces, in the fight against cancer.

Over 300 work places and 150 shopping centres took part in CANSA’s 7th Shavathon event, Shavathon 2010 . On the 5th of March schools, organizations and work places hosted Shavathon events, while on Saturday, 6th March, Shavathon events took place at shopping centres across South Africa.

Not exactly dull!

It's for all ages

Do you have a mirror?

Is it too late to change my mind?

Shorter at the back, please

Too much hair around here

        Thank you very much.

        Thank heavens somebody’s on the ball! I never realised the offer could be useful in that way.
