The annual Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) Shavathon on 6-7 March proved to be a heady experience for many who succumbed to shears and colour sprays - all in the name of charity. Hosted at UCT by Kopano on 7 March, student Sean Rennie was among the 100 or so students and staff who shed their hair, helping the residence raise R1 700 for CANSA. "We didn't do as well as last year because of short notice," said Kopano co-ordinator Lungelo Gumede, "but under the circumstances we did pretty well." Over 200 workplaces and 137 shopping centres hosted events as part of the national campaign.
