THIS weekend, the 15th annual Cansa Shavathon will hit shopping centres across the South Coast. The Shavathon is held to show solidarity with those affected by cancer. Shavathons will be held at Shelly Centre, Southcoast Mall and Hibiscus Mall on Saturday.

A few venues will also host public events on Sunday.

Workplaces and organisations will be hosting events from Monday to March 2.

Losing one’s hair is a common side-effect of cancer therapy, so shaving your head has become a symbolic gesture of support for cancer survivors.

Colouring your hair or paying a “bail-out” fee have become options for those who prefer not to shave, or who cannot shave on the day.

For those who would like to be involved and make a difference, Shavathon embraces volunteers. Their support is invaluable. Show your support by bringing your loved ones along. You can shave, spray or stencil your hair, or do all three.

Cansa thanks Scottburgh High, Port Shepstone Senior Secondary, Port Shepstone Senior Primary, Creston College, Port Edward Primary and Ollies Pre School for showing support and helping to fight cancer.

An invitation is extended to all schools in the region to be part of this drive.

The Lions will be at Hibiscus Mall, the Tiagos team will be at Southcoast Mall and the Harcourts team will be at Shelly Centre.
