This Weekend Shavathon Colours HOPE @ Shopping Centres (Sat, 2nd March | selected venues Sun, 3rd March). We hope you will join us in showing those affected by cancer that they are not alone! Funds raised will go towards CANSA’s care and support programmes for cancer Survivors (patients) and loved ones. It is a time to laugh, have fun, reflect, shed a tear, to be thankful, and to pay respect to those fighting cancer, alongside others who are similarly affected. To remember and honour those who lost the fight. Please remember to share your participation with us on social media platforms using the hashtag #CANSAShavathon.
