THERE was a constant stream of people through the pink ballooned lane to Taylors for the breast cancer awareness morning last Saturday.

The vibe was positive throughout as well as colourful as Shirene and Jackie and their team of helpers hair sprayed an exotic array of colours onto many young and somewhat older heads.

A few of the brave went the whole way to graphically show support for cancer patients who lose their hair due to chemotherapy.

Cupcake fanciers drooled at the range of beautifully decorated cupcakes baked, decorated and donated by Greytonians.

On the more serious side, Dr Ntibelleng Motebele at Greytown Hospital, spoke on various aspects of cancer and the importance of being aware of early diagnosis, body changes, mammograms, check-ups, healthy lifestyles, exercise, and most importantly - no smoking.

A new feature this year, which proved to be very successful, was the auctioning of various items by Bobby Pearson - this generated much laughter and fun as well as generous responses from bidders.

Just over R15 000 was raised, which is to be donated to Choc, the organisation involved with children with cancer. Organisers, Karen Taylor of Taylors and Zeena Ally of Superbody are to be congratulated and thanked for hosting such an incredible event. Thanks also to the following who all contributed in many ways to this successful event - Plennegy, Mascor, Marcovich Rottcher, Country Nursery, Ram’s Florist, Asha Govender, Shirley Naicker, Umvoti Animal Hospital, Aheers, Greytown Office Machines, Taylors Gift and Coffee shop, Star Packaging, Plennegy Print, Superbody Club; Kerry Taylor, Mubashina SAPS, Shireen Janthielayal (sprayathon, shavathon) and Jackie Chapman.
