Halls Gap turning pink

HALLS GAP - Halls Gap will turn a shade of pink this weekend as Marianne Mitchell and local identity Paul Russell have their hair dyed pink.

The duo will brave the hair dye from 3pm at Stoney Creek. The fundraiser tomorrow is just an encore to the main event next weekend.

As part of Mrs Mitchell's involvement in this year's Cancer Council Relay for Life on March 29 she is still appealing for donations of bras, boxers and bears.

"These items are symbolic of cancers' indiscriminate effects on men, women and children," she said.

"We are hoping to get enough items to create a kilometre long 3B "Barrier against Cancer" as part of our family day at the Halls Gap Cricket Oval on March 16."

Activities on the day include raffles, auctions, face painting, pony rides and heaps of other fun things for people of all ages to do.

The afternoon will culminate in Marianne and Paul getting their pink locks shaved.

Donations of bras, boxers or bears may be left at the Service Station, Main Road, Halls Gap or sent free of postage to HeadShave@The Gap, Reply Paid 18, Halls Gap 3381.

Cash donations can be left at any ANZ Bank or online; BSB 013815, Account Number 387694982.

The Relay for Life is an annual event that raises money for research into all forms of cancer.
