About Shave or Dye

Shave or Dye participants in blue t-shirts

This annual fundraiser raises funds for  free cancer services, such as our Daffodil Centre support and resource centres located in hospitals across the country.

Each year, thousands of participants get their friends and family to sponsor them to shave or dye their hair. By Shaving, Dying or Messing your hair, you are showing your support for  thousands of people who are going through, or have gone though, cancer treatment themselves.

Since it began in 2010 Today FM's Shave or Dye has raised over €7.55 million for cancer patients and their families, thanks to the generosity and spirit of the Irish public.

I shaved my head!! It was a great experience… Throughout my years I have experienced friends and family dealing with grief over their loved ones passing away from cancer and I decided to support the Irish Cancer Society by doing this!

I thought it would be a great idea to hold an event like this in the school that I work in, Davis College, Mallow. I got the teachers involved in shaving the hair and hopefully the students learned that it didn’t matter how silly I looked, the most important thing was to help people that are going through a really tough time.
