As co-or­di­na­tors of the Breast Can­cer Pink Rib­bon Street Ap­peal for 2015, we would like to say a heart­felt thank you to the peo­ple of Mata­mata.

To the vol­un­teers who manned the ta­bles and col­lected do­na­tions and to the good peo­ple who do­nated and to He­len Ri­ley for her won­der­ful busk­ing and the teenagers who walked the CBD and the young men who dressed in pink and helped out – and es­pe­cially to the many busi­nesses that do­nated goods and ser­vices to the raf­fles – in fact to the whole of Mata­mata, what a gen­er­ous and sup­port­ive town we live in.

We have not yet fully counted but it looks like we raised just over $4,500 to as­sist in the fight against breast can­cer – well done to us all. The raf­fles drawn, prizes de­liv­ered and all win­ners very happy.
