THURSDAY is a day for a close shave and the Gisborne Farmers store will join with Farmers shops around the country in their Shave for a Cure campaign to support New Zealanders fighting blood cancer.

Last year more than 1600 Kiwis raised more than $1.2 million for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand, Farmers’ official charity, by having their heads shaved.

Farmers customers raised $190,000 through donations or by buying shave slap bands for $5.

Staff at 20 Farmers stores are expected to have their heads shaved this year.

The Gisborne store will host their Shave for a Cure session on Thursday between midday and 1.30pm.

So far, 1035 people have volunteered to be shaved.

Otherwise people can make a donation or buy a shave slap band.
