Locals and visitors to Hermanus showed their support for CANSA’s ‘Colouring Hope’ Shavathon on Saturday 2 March by donating their hair to make wigs for cancer patients experiencing hair loss. The Shavathon is a nationwide event where members of the community volunteer to either have their heads shaven or to have their hair spray painted in different colours to help CANSA raise funds and create awareness. The funds raised will go towards CANSA’s care and support programmes for cancer survivors and their loved ones. Six-year-old Emily Malherbe from Ashton and her family were visiting relatives in Hermanus when they decided to show their support for the CANSA Shavathon at the Whale Coast Mall. Emily’s hair was spray painted with bright colours while her brother had his head shaved.
