Phar­macy turns pretty in pink

Whitsunday Times - - YOUR SAY -

WHIT­SUN­DAY Phar­macy turned pink to raise aware­ness for Breast Can­cer Aware­ness this month.

Pink dec­o­ra­tions hang­ing from the ceil­ing called at­ten­tion to the health cam­paign, while mer­chan­dise on the counter raised funds for re­search into a breast can­cer cure.

Staff mem­ber Kay­lene Fraley said she’d seen a sim­i­lar dis­play in an­other re­tailer and re­ceived a pos­i­tive re­sponse when she ran the idea past co-work­ers.

“It was all to be pink, which is the breast can­cer colour,” she said. “The bras, rep­re­sent­ing women, was some­thing I had seen done in an­other re­tail shop.

“It’s been amaz­ing the amount of peo­ple who have asked what the dis­play is for.”

Ms Fraley said the team wore pink on Mon­day, Wed­nes­day and Fri­day and had their hair done with pink flow­ers in the true spirit of the cam­paign.

A breast can­cer fundraiser will be held on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 28, hosted by Whit­sun­day lo­cal Jo McGre­gor, who was di­ag­nosed with meta­plas­tic breast can­cer in 2017.

The Jo McGre­gor Pink Rib­bon Break­fast is now an an­nual event fol­low­ing its suc­cess last year, with all money raised do­nated di­rectly to Breast Can­cer Re­search. The break­fast will be held at The Hangar Cafe and Bar at Whit­sun­day Air­port, Shute Har­bour from 9am-noon.

PINK LADIES: Whit­sun­day Phar­macy staff Karen Mitchell, Paitin Powell, Kayleen Fraley and Tif­fany Agara all in pink.
