It’s our 11th Shavathon this
year – come and celebrate with us – bring your family members, friends or
colleagues along to shave
or spray in solidarity with cancer survivors, on
Saturday, 1st March 2014.
Adults can shave or
spray their head for a donation
of R50 (or more) and children, under 12 years old, for R25. You can pay
cash at the venue or to fast track the process you can make an online donation in advance and take your
confirmation e-mail to the venue as proof of payment.
You can also volunteer in these
