Sup­port­ers: Alice Mills of French Essence Cafe serves cof­fee for Joy Sut­tie, left, Shirley Ni­cholas, Peter Ni­cholas and Ali­son Weaver dur­ing the Pink Rib­bon brunch hosted by the cafe on Satur­day morn­ing. Cafe owner Dave An­der­son says the event, held on the last day of Pink Rib­bon month, had some good sup­port, rais­ing just over $1200. The first two cus­tomers of the day do­nated $100 each to the cause. Any­one com­ing along made a do­na­tion and en­joyed a two course break­fast, with all the pro­ceeds go­ing to­wards breast cancer re­search and med­i­cal grants in New Zealand. ‘‘This was the first one we have hosted and we are re­ally happy with how it went. We were aim­ing for $1000, so we are very pleased. Both my fam­ily and [my wife] Sarah’s fam­i­lies have been touched by cancer. Also we have a new baby daugh­ter so this is also our way of help­ing the fu­ture gen­er­a­tion of women,’’ he says. Photo: SVEN HERSEL­MAN
