WITH the theme of bringing about awareness of the importance of early detection of cancer, last Saturday's Pink and Blue project in King Edward Park achieved that. Thanks to the generous sponsors and the support of the public over R20 000 was raised, which will be divided between adult and children's cancer funds.

One of the most popular stalls was the Shavathon, which provided all the colours of the rainbow as young and old expressed their support for cancer patients and survivors through being shaved bald or having their hair coloured.

Despite the heat 85 people took part in the fun walk around the streets of the park. Entertainment was provided by the talented and colourful dancers of Tholinhlanhla and Indlovana schools

The organisers, Super Body Club, and Theresa Edwards of Umvoti Municipality expressed their appreciation for all the assistance and support received from the municipality, SAPS, EMRS and the Pink and Blue team.
