FOLLOW the pink balloons down St Clements Lane to Taylor’s this Saturday – any time between 9am and 2pm for lots of activity at the Pink October Breast Cancer Awareness and fund-raiser event.

The theme that cancer, if diagnosed early and with treatment, is not a death sentence is vital therefore children, men and women must be aware of the importance of a healthy lifestyle, early detection and symptoms.

On the lighter side - the Shavathon-Sprayathon. For a donation of R50 have your hair sprayed in bright colours, or even braver, have your hair shaved off - its actually a number one cut - between 9am and 12pm, and you can match your hair colour with nail or henna art right there.

One of the most popular features of this annual event, now in its fifth year, is the tasty array of cupcakes – baked, decorated and donated as part of CANSA fund-raising.

There will also be wors rolls, savoury muffins to buy and of course the cuppa for cancer.

A new exciting feature is a fund-raising auction at intervals from 10.30am.

Taylor’s and Superbody Club have acquired a great range of items – food hampers, jewellery, etc., so be there and join in the fun.

On the cancer awareness front Dr Ntibelleng Motebele will give a talk at 10.30am on cancer awareness, treatments and lifestyle.

Saturday’s event is sponsored by Taylor’s and Superbody Club. All money raised will be donated to Choc, the organisation involved with children with cancer.

Make sure you check the pink balloons between 9am and 2pm.

There will be secure parking at the back of Taylor’s – entrance from Cathcart Street will be signposted.
