And organiser Rod Anthony said they are going to prove their toughness by sporting the hot pink hair dos for a month.

‘The guys are colouring their hair, beards or both. Some are doing streaks others are doing mohawks ” all in hot pink,’ Mr Anthony said. ‘We are doing this from what started as a dare and ended up being a charity event to raise money for the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.

‘We believe we have a difference from other such events by having ours for the entire month and people will post pics to our Facebook page regularly to show they are continuing the commitment.’

Mr Anthony, from Byford, said people could follow on Facebook or visit and donate at the PMH Foundation site.

‘We are also having a car cruise on August 18 finishing at Taylor Reserve, Taylor Street, Victoria Park, next to McCallum Park,’ he said. ‘On the day we have some raffles, sausage sizzle, bouncy castle and hair spraying, plus 100-odd cars on display. It is free entry to the venue and anyone who owns a steel bumper car is invited to join the cruise for a $20 donation.’
