An­gels in ac­tion

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Char­lie’s An­gels, from Pukerua Bay, raised $349 at a Pink Rib­bon Break­fast for the Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion held at Pukerua Bay School hall on Thurs­day.

Char­lie’s An­gels has been fundrais­ing for wor­thy char­i­ties for a cou­ple of years and was orig­i­nally formed by Pukerua Bay res­i­dent Lu­cie Reece for the first Porirua Re­lay for Life in 2010.

‘‘I wanted to sup­port my friend Char­lene in the UK, who is fight­ing can­cer,’’ Ms Reece said. ‘‘I wanted her to know that although we are on the other side of the world, she’s never far from our minds.’’

Since then the group has sup­ported other char­i­ties by com­pet­ing in the Kapiti Women’s Duathlon, in sup­port of Kid­ney Kids, shav­ing their heads for Shave for a Cure and sup­port­ing Kenbe La Foun­da­tion Pur­ple Cake Day.

The com­mu­nity sup­ported the Pink Rib­bon Break­fast well.

Along with morn­ing tea, there were raf­fles, a silent auc­tion and an art­work by artist and Char­lie’s An­gels mem­ber Chrissie Sul­li­van.

The paint­ing, which was spe­cially cre­ated for the event, will be listed on Trade Me un­der Char­lie’s An­gels and pro­ceeds will be added to the money col­lected on the day.

‘‘We’re al­ways look­ing for our next chal­lenge. As my friend is fight­ing breast can­cer, we thought a Pink Break­fast was a good way to show sup­port to her as well as Char­lene,’’ Char­lie’s An­gel Jen­ina Snowl­ing said.
