Fundraiser a hair raiser

Pinjarra Murray Times - - OPINION -

STUMPED for a new fundrais­ing idea, Na­talie Dodds thought she would take a break be­fore re­mem­ber­ing she had an er­rand to do for her daugh­ter.

Her daugh­ter needed some new hair bows and while filling out her or­der the per­fect fundrais­ing idea dawned on Mrs Dodds.

Mrs Dodds is a mem­ber of the Man­durah Mer­maids, a re­lay team in this year’s Re­lay for Life for the Can­cer Coun­cil.

She said each team had to come up with a new fundrais­ing ven­ture that was dif­fer­ent to what had been done be­fore.

“On Face­book I dis­cov­ered these beau­ti­ful hair ac­ces­sories and have be­come a cus­tomer of the busi­ness,” she said.

Mrs Dodds or­ders her daugh­ter’s hair rib­bons from her favourite sup­plier, Im­pres­sive Pieces by Dani.

It is a home busi­ness in Se­cret Har­bour run by Danielle Rosina.

“So put­ting in my or­der that day, I got the idea and asked Danielle if she was will­ing to do­nate some hair bows for our re­lay for life team,” she said.

“She agreed and here we are.

“I am so happy with her re­sponse – she went above and be­yond, even or­der­ing spe­cially made rib­bons in the white, pur­ple and yel­low.

Ms Rosina said al­most ever­body was af­fected through fam­ily or friends by can­cer.

“That was my rea­son for do­ing it, hav­ing had fam­ily mem­bers with can­cer. It’s just a re­ally good cause to sup­port,” she said.

The Peel leg of the Can­cer Coun­cils Re­lay for Life is on Oc­to­ber 28 and 29 from 11am to 11am at Rush­ton Park.
