THE LET­TER OF THE WEEK

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - YOUR SAY -

ON BE­HALF of ev­ery­one at the McGrath Foun­da­tion, we’d like to say a huge thank you to the Mt Druitt com­mu­nity for get­ting be­hind our win­ter #Pul­lOnYourSocks ini­tia­tive.

Thank you to Bunzl In­dus­trial & Safety, Rooty Hill Dragons JRLC and the ju­nior league of­fice for their fan­tas­tic ef­forts. They are one of more than 200 clubs, schools and busi­nesses who got their lo­cal com­mu­nity in­volved, don­ning the McGrath Foun­da­tion’s pink socks and help­ing raise a col­lec­tive sum of close to $300,000.

All funds raised help us place McGrath breast care nurses across the coun­try, pro­vid­ing spe­cialised care, free of charge, to fam­i­lies ex­pe­ri­enc­ing breast can­cer. It also helps us to in­crease breast aware­ness in young peo­ple. And now that the cricket sea­son is bowl­ing in, we’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing the amaz­ing Pink Stumps Day ef­forts of the Mt Druitt com­mu­nity! For more in­for­ma­tion or to register, head to mc­grath­foun­da­tion.com.au/pinkcricket. To­gether we can make a dif­fer­ence!

Pe­tra Buchanan, CEO, McGrath Foun­da­tion
