Marianne on final leg of Pink Relay

Marianne Mitchell's Cancer Council Relay for Life fundraising drive will culminate in a head shave during a family day at the Halls Gap Cricket Oval this Sunday.

Last weekend Mrs Mitchell and local identity Paul Russell had their hair dyed pink in front of a crowd of onlookers at Stoney Creek.

That was just an appetiser to Sunday's event when between 11am and 3pm they'll have their heads shaved.

As part of Mrs Mitchell's involvement in this year's Cancer Council Relay for Life she has appealed for donations of bras, boxers and bears, enough to create a kilometre long 3B "Barrier against Cancer" around the Halls Gap Cricket Oval.

People who attend Sunday are encouraged to bring along some of the items and spare a little of their loose change.

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

Mrs Mitchell set herself a fundraising target of $5000.

Activities on the day include raffles, face painting, jumping castle, motorbike rides, sausage sizzle, massage table and heaps of other fun things for people of all ages to enjoy.

Members of the Country Fire Authority and State Emergency Service will be on hand as items including a Jarred Roughead signed Hawthorn football jumper, a Helen Leach painting valued at $250 and two dressed sheep are auctioned off all in the name of charity.

Donations of bras, boxers or bears can still 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.
