Rid­ers, horses pretty in pink for an­nual fundraiser

The Cobram Courier - - SPORT -

Co­bram and Dis­trict Pony Club were dressed up for a good cause on Oc­to­ber 21 for the an­nual Pink Day.

In sup­port of the Na­tional Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion, the group held ac­tiv­i­ties, com­pe­ti­tions and dressed up at the Muck­atah Recre­ation Re­serve.

Club pres­i­dent Barb Clarke said the day was about the group giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity.

‘‘A few par­ents we know of have had breast can­cer and so this is a way of sup­port­ing them,’’ she said.

‘‘This year it was a good turnout and ev­ery­one had a great day. We al­ways have a dress up com­pe­ti­tion — both horses and peo­ple — and ev­ery­one had fun.

‘‘We’re al­ways look­ing at ways we can put back into the com­mu­nity as they’ve helped the club so much.’’

Prizes for best dressed went to Emily Jeffs, Haylee Adams and Ava Mor­gan-Trease.

A do­na­tion will go to the Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion.
