ANDY "Random" Berglund raised more than $700 for the Peter McCallum Cancer Centre by shaving her head at the weekend's triple header roller derby bout.

Ms Berglund is a Dragon City Derby Dolls member and was inspired to raise money for cancer research after losing her mum to cancer two months ago.

Ms Berglund's sister Emma had the honour of wielding the clippers for the shave during half-time at Saturday's roller derby action at Bendigo Stadium.

More than 250 people turned out to watch The Witches of East Vic take on Geelong Roller Derby, the Chicko Rollers go up against North East Roller Derby and Ballarat's Rat Pack go head-to-head with VRDLs Gold Lions.

Allison "Library Fine" Hadfield said Bendigo's home team Chiko Rollers came out on top.

"Chiko Rollers were 251 over North East Roller Derby with 176," she said.

"Most valuable players for the Chikos, as voted by the other team, were 'Lambchops' for jammer and 'Psycho Analyser' for blocking in her debut bout.

"The Chikos will be heading over to The Great Southern Slam in South Australia in June so we're raising money and have a gofundme page for donations at http://www.gofundme.com/dcdd2tgss."
