Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

COM­MU­NI­TIES are dig­ging deep to sup­port the Na­tional Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion.

Gayn­dah Guardian Phar­macy re­cently held a Pan­cakes for aCure Break­fast with Sergeant Lu­cas Hamp­son man­ning the hot­plate, and a Pink Raf­fle through­out Oc­to­ber.

In­clud­ing the sale of pink mer­chan­dise, more than $1300 was raised for the foun­da­tion.

Sa­man­tha Rowles from Guardian Phar­macy said the pan­cake event was so suc­cess­ful it would be­come an an­nual event.

Mun­dub­bera Guardian Phar­macy sold raf­fle tick­ets and pink lam­ing­tons and hosted a pink bar­be­cue in the park.

Their ef­forts raised $1016 for the Na­tional Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion.

“The Mun­dub­bera com­mu­nity dug deep to help us sup­port a cause that has touched so many in our com­mu­nity,” Mrs Rowles said.“We couldn’t have done it with­out you.”

Melvie Half­penny won the Mun­dub­bera pink raf­fle and Tammy Shorten won the Gayn­dah pink pam­per pack.
