Tickled pink for breast cancer support


SWATHED in pink and ready to sink its teeth into the Moe Lions, Yallourn North Cricket Club turned out in force on Saturday to raise money for the McGrath Foundation in the fight against breast cancer.

The club generated $1200 for the charity through its ‘Pink Stumps Day’ fundraiser, with a range of activities from fingernail painting, manicures, raffles and a DJ set through to an auction on a cap signed by Glenn McGrath contributing to the cause.

Even the lunch time salad rolls were tinged pink for the occasion, which is set to be bolstered by a player auction at the club’s presentation night.

Yallourn North spokesperson Jan Donnet said the boys all pulled behind the cause as part of the nationwide initiative.

“They were great, the guys always enjoy doing that sort of thing and supporting us at the end of the day buying raffle tickets,” she said.

All proceeds go toward ensuring every family experiencing breast cancer has access to a breast care nurse, no matter where they live or their financial situation.
