Celebrating life in colour with CANSA

Learners from Gateway after doing their part of supporting Shavathon.

The annual CANSA Shavathon took place this past week. According to Christelle Strauss from the local branch of CANSA, this year’s event was a huge success.

“An amazing amount of R17 630,50 was collected. This is due to the participation and contributions of the community, our schools and businesses.”

CANSA is a non-profit organisation that helps fight cancer and offers support to those suffering from this illness.

The community participated by spraying or shaving their hair, as a symbolic gesture of support for survivors.

Strauss wishes to thank everyone for their contribution towards the Shavathon.

“I would like to specially appreciate the excellent work done by the handful of volunteers who helped to make this event such a huge success.

“Annatjie Sampson, Dawn Kritzinger, Danie van der Merwe, Fawzia Vawda,

Ivy Smit, Joanna Msibi, Muriel Reddy, Raeesa Joosub and Rita Esterhuizen, we thank you. Without these volunteers, it would not have been possible to attempt an event like this,” she said.

A special thank you also goes to the following, next to each is the amount of money we made when visiting them Barberton Academy – R 718, Barberton Daisies – R 520, Barberton Kleutervriend
