Bob has the last remnants of his beard shaved off by hairstylist, Marcelle. Behind him is Dee Love of the NSRI who sported an orange hairdo for Cansa

Well known Bob Meikle , a former NSRI station commander in St Francis Bay, this morning had his beard that he has sported for the past 20 years, shaved off for Cansa.

An enthusiastic crowd egged him on, together with the event master of ceremonies, Warren Manser of Tourism, at the annual Shavathon held at St Francis Village shopping centre. The Shavathon  turned into  a mini carnival with stalls selling foods and interesting items. The most original had to be the Brooker boys’ idea to sell old pieces of the Sand River bridge as souvenirs.

A fun group sporting shaved or coloured heads at the Shavathon were Mathew, Kingsley, Keri, Lettie and Warren
