Photo: FIONA GOODALL By NICOLA WILLIAMS A youth group is braving hot wax and razors for a good cause. About 10 Eastgate Christian Centre young men will lose body hair to raise money for cancer charity CanTeen. Each is getting spon- sorship to either have their head shaved or their chest or legs waxed. Their friends and fam- ily will get the pleasure of watching the sacrifice during a ball their youth group will host for other young people. A lot of the guys in our youth group are very precious about their hairstyles so for a lot of them it s a big thing to shave it off, Ashley says. James, 14, will have a new look to get used to but he s keen to take part in his youth group s mission to serve others. I thought people with cancer have no choice when their hair falls out so why not give up some- thing you take for granted for charity. Caleb wasn t keen to part with his highlighted locks so he s getting his chest waxed. I m known for my hairy chest and I think people would sponsor me to see me in pain. I ve got to man up and take some concrete pills, and get some aloe vera lotion. The Big City, Bright Lights themed ball is on December 7 with food, a band, DJ, vocal group and dancing from 7pm to 10.30pm. Tickets at $10 are available at the door. Any profits will go to CanTeen. We are going to have a fun time without alcohol. Some people think you can t have fun without alcohol and drugs but we do it at Eastgate every week, Ashley says. Book fair will be big Clear out the cupboards of pre-loved books, games, CDs, DVDs and puzzles for the Variety Monster Book Fair. The fair will raise money for Variety -- The Children s Charity. The event will be held mid next year but the committee is already hard at work sorting donations to maximise the money it raises for sick, disabled and disad- vantaged children. This year s event raised more than $115,000. Funds will go towards a literacy and communi- cation programme. Drop items off at 290 Great South Rd, Greenlane, from 8.30am to 5pm or Variety can pick them up. Call 520-4111.
