Hope for breastfast
IT WAS a very pink morning in the park.
Mundubbera Guardian Pharmacy held a Pink Sausage Sizzle Breastfast in the park recently to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
The morning was well supported with locals enjoying more than one of the Mundubbera Sausage King’s snags.
Aswell as sizzling sausages, pharmacy staff members were busy selling raffle tickets and taking pre-orders for the popular pink lamingtons.
“October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and the Guardian team get behind the cause to raise awareness and funds for the foundation,” Sam Rowles said.
“Breast cancer is the most commonly-diagnosed cancer among women in Australia.
“It’s so important to get the message of hope out there andwe thank the community for their support of our pink ribbon breakfast campaign.”
Last year there were more than 2000 pink ribbon breakfast events held around Australia, raising $2.16 million for breast cancer research.
This year Mundubbera Guardian Pharmacy raised $1016. All proceeds will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
