LADIES WHO LUNCH
About 120 people got together at the Winton Business Association Pink for a Day ladies luncheon was held in Winton to raise funds for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation. Organiser Maria Scammell said in the first year the event was held, $2000 was raised. On Friday that figure had risen to $6000 with the help of business owners and individuals who donated toward raffles. This year an auction element was added to the luncheon, which helped bring in $1130 of the funds raised. During the years the event had always been well supported and had become a ‘‘nice ladies afternoon’’. Guest speaker Di Foster, of Christchurch, who has twice had cancer, was on hand to talk about her experience. Foster has been clear of cancer for six years. Scammell said she had heard Foster speaking at an event in Christchurch, which inspired her to invite her south for the luncheon at Winton.
