SHOW OF SUPPORT: Dalrene on Mostyn owner Robyn Rantall joined the cause.

CASTLEMAINE businesses rallied in support of Relay for Life last week, decking out shopfronts with purple decorations with a splash of daffodils.

A majority of businesses along Barker and Mostyn streets showed their support to encourage people in the region to begin forming a team in the 24-hour event.

Castlemaine Relay for Life committee member Nicki Renfrey said businesses came up with some unique ideas.

"Our eventual winner 213 Hair Design had a purple-themed day, where they gave purple streaks in people's hair for a gold coin donation and had music about purple playing all day," she said.

"We had a difficult time deciding who did the best job."

The town will host the event for overnight on November 7 and 8 at Castlemaine Camp Reserve.

Ms Renfrey said it would be "fantastic" if they could draw a team each from Newstead, Harcourt and Maldon.
