Price­less re­ac­tion to Pur­ple Bra Day

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

STAFF at Aqual­ife Leisure Cen­tre in Vic­to­ria Park have banded to­gether to form a small pur­ple army and raise money for Breast Cancer Care WA last month.

Both male and fe­male staff whipped out their favourite pur­ple bras and out­fits and raised more than $130 with a morn­ing tea.

Vic­to­ria Park res­i­dent and Aqual­ife em­ployee Cather­ine Giles said a close friend of her col­league had lost her bat­tle with breast cancer.

“It was amaz­ing to see all the staff get in­volved and watch the men strut around in their pur­ple bras,” Ms Giles said.

“Ev­ery­one’s re­ac­tions to each other’s at­tire were price­less and it was just a day full of fun and good laughs.”

Aqual­ife hopes to get their mem­bers in­volved in the fundrais­ing ac­tion next year.

Team mem­bers Rachel Dessent, Mary Cor­nelius and Cather­ine Giles get into the spirit on Pur­ple Bra Day.
