Dashwood head shave is April 28

Rural community outside Qualicum Beach raises funds for cancer research

The Dashwood Fire Department is getting ready for its eighth annual Head Shave for Cancer event

The Dashwood Fire Department is already gearing up for their eight annual Head Shave for Cancer event, coming Sunday, Apr. 28.

Coinciding with the Canadian Cancer Society’s Daffodil Month, the event has become one of the major local fundraisers with the 40 member department raising over $30,000 to date with hundreds of people stopping by for the mid-day excitement.

Long time organizer Harvey Twidale points out that their members have many personal connections to the battle with cancer, like virtually everyone in the community and they invite everyone to stop by for the fun festive atmosphere and donate for a shave, or just for the good cause.

Watch The NEWS and www.dashwoodvfd.com for more details. People can donate at the hall, 230 Hobbs Road or by calling Twidale at 250-752-9882.
