Tickled pink in Goodwood

GOODWOOD Community Centre volunteers, staff and guests donned their best pink outfits last month to raise money for breast cancer support and research.

Proceeds from the centre’s annual Pink Ribbon Breakfast will once again be donated to the McGrath Foundation to support McGrath Breast Care Nurses in Tasmania.

McGrath Breast Care Nurses provide invaluable physical, psychological and emotional support from the time of diagnosis of breast cancer and throughout treatment.

This support is provided free of charge and can be accessed through self-referral.

Goodwood Community Centre coordinator Rachel French said she thanked guests from the community for attending.

“We also thank the many volunteers who helped with food and decoration preparations,” she said.

The Speaker of the House of Assembly, Elise Archer, praised the centre for coordinating yet another impressive event.

“Services such as the McGrath Foundation Breast Care Nurses simply would not exist without the fundraising efforts of community organisations such as the Goodwood Community Centre,” she said.

“The effort that volunteers and staff go to every year to organise this fundraising event, which I always look forward to, is always incredible.

“The pink outfits on the day were very creative and certainly got into the spirit of the event, and it was again a fundraising triumph while having enormous fun.”
