Students at Kopano Residence lined up on Friday, 15 February to have their heads shaved and spray-painted to raise funds for cancer research.
The Shavathon, organised by the Kopano house committee, charged students R20 to have their heads shaved and spray-painted. All funds were donated to the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA).
Students were unfazed at the prospect of spending the next few months with a full head of stubble.
"It's for charity and it will grow back," quipped second-year physiotherapy student Kath Fennemore.
All eight members of the Kopano house committee had their heads shaved and painted, and scores of students supported the charity drive.
"It costs about R50 for a shave at a barber's shop," said house committee member Scott Havemann, "so this is a bargain."
