LEE Primary School in Darnall hosted the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) to raise awareness and teach pupils about cancer in children.

CANSA nurse Sister Sane Mahlangu gave talks to the staff on cancers affecting men and women. On the day there was also a “sprayathon” where pupils sprayed their hair with different colours in an effort to raise funds for CANSA — Richards Bay. Gugu Gwambe, from CANSA, said that, as a non-profit organisation, holding such events is important for fundraising.

“We have a care home and care centre where we accommodate cancer patients undergoing treatment to stay for free,” she said.
