March 23-29 is the official Shave Week for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand’s campaign Shave for a Cure. This year, Farmers are getting in on the action again with 21 stores hosting public shave events.

On Tuesday, customers and staff at Famers Albany got extra support from Shortland Street stars Pua Magasiva and Kerry-Lee Dewing. And on Thursday, Paralympian Sophie Pascoe took over shaving duties at Farmers Northlands’ Shave for a Cure event.

“Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand is a charity close to the hearts of many of our 4,000 staff,” said Farmers managing director Rod McDermott.

“We are proud to raise awareness and funds for this worthy cause which provides benefits to patients and continues the search for a cure.”

The campaign will be running until April 7, so you can still show your support – even if you aren’t shaving your hair! Farmers will be offering an official Shave for a Cure Slap Band for a minimum $5 donation, and you can also choose to donate a sum of your choice at the point of sale.

You can register for one of the Farmers public shave events at www.shaveforacure.co.nz, or contact the shave team on 0800 15 10 15.
