Cuts and colour for Cancer


Patrons at the Mall of Africa in Midrand arrived in their numbers on 24 February to support those affected by cancer at the Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa) Shavathon.

The Cansa Shavathon is one of South Africa’s best-loved fundraising events.

The young and old excitedly jumped at the opportunity to have their hair cut or temporarily sprayed with various colours for R50. All the funds raised at the event were donated to Cansa.
