Tickled pink over raising $1,249

A FUNDRAISER at Canterbury League Club has left staff (pictured) tickled pink.

For a week in October, staff at the club were doing all things pink to boost breast cancer awareness and raise funds for National Breast Cancer Australia (NBCF).
By the end of the week, $1,249 was collected thanks to the generosity of members and staff – the highest amount over the last three years.
For every purchase of a pink dessert from Bakehouse Café and The Bistro during the week, Canterbury donated $1 to NBCF. Extra funds were raised from donation boxes around the club, and staff fundraising activities like a lolly guessing competition and raffles.
The week’s activities finished off strongly on Friday, October 25, with Canterbury’s annual invitation to staff to wear ‘A Touch of Pink’ in their uniforms – be it a pink shirt, pink tie, pink socks, pink makeup and nails, or pink accessories.
A club spokesperson said a big hearty thank you to everyone who participated, donated, wore pink and ate a pink dessert in support of this event.
All money raised will go towards NBCF to help fund important research in cancer prevention and support programs.
