PROSTABLOG NZ: Former All Black captain Buck Shelford (right) took the message about being checked for prostate cancer to a gathering of builders, customers and staff at Porirua Placemakers early Friday.
“There was much embarrassing amusement about ‘the finger’ amongst the men, of course,” says Ian Morrison, Wellington branch chairman for the NZ Prostate Cancer Foundatio.
Attending a barbeque organised by Placemakers, Buck autographed three rugby balls, which were auctioned, signed some teeshirts, and talked to people.
Then eight brave men and a woman submitted to the clippers and lost their locks for the cause.
Plenty of funds were raised for prostate cancer awareness, says Ian.
