Photos from the 2020 Peter Wilson Memorial Championship in Nelson Bay

The excessive heat may have called a premature end to the 13th annual Peter Wilson Memorial Championship hosted by Nelson Bay Touch Association last weekend, however it did not take away from some spectacular action.

The Tomaree touch football fields attracted thousands of people for the championship event.

Unfortunately, the excessive heat forced an early end to the tournament on Sunday after temperatures reached 40 degrees around midday.

But one person who managed to stay cool was Don Green, a Hornets selector for 30-plus years, who dyed his hair purple for charity.

"I wanted to raise money for research into testicular cancer, which is prevalent in young males aged from their late teens to early 30s," he said.

Don Green had his hair dyed purple at Anna Bay.

"We had people collecting money all weekend and I would like to thank all those people who donated as well as Melinda Wise from Meraki hair studio at Anna Bay for dying my hair."

Mr Green, a touch footy enthusiast and selection director from Parkes, said that he had collected more than $4000 and was on target to hit his target of $5000.
