More than $7000 was raised at the Funrazor for the South Canterbury Child Cancer Foundation, held at the Speight’s Ale House on Friday night. The annual event, in which participants’ hair is shaved off, is held to raise to raise money to support South Canterbury families who have children affected by cancer.
Organiser Sue Howes said the event, in its 10th year, was once again a success.
“About $7500 was raised and the support was great,” Mrs Howes said.
Ten people lost their locks at the fundraiser, three of them children – Lilly Murray, Tyrone Walsh and Chevy Williams.
Mrs Howes said this was the most youngsters the event had attracted.
“We usually have the odd child taking part but this year’s was so great to see, with the three young ones taking part.”
She hoped next year’s event would be a “celebratory one”, including a party to celebrate the fundraiser’s success.
She thanked the public for its support.
“We just want to thank everybody involved. We appreciate all the work everybody does to get it organised,” she said.
