Around 60 community members will be going bald this weekend, to raise money for Cancer diagnostic and treatment equipment.

This Saturday is Bluey Day at the Hospital, where participants fundraise, on a promise to shave their heads.

Fund Development Officer Ashley Bentley says the event is crucial for the Hospital.

Moose FM is holding a barbeque on site, where donations will also be accepted, with all proceeds going towards the event.

Bentley says the foundation hopes to raise 100 thousand dollars. She says participants are going around the community looking for sponsors before the big day.

Bentley says everyone is encouraged to come watch the participants shave it all off.
