Cumberland View Aged Care Living – Whalley Drive hosted a great morning tea on Monday 24th October to support the Cancer Council of Victoria’s Pink Ribbon day.
Each year, the day aims to raise awareness about breast and gynaecological cancers, and raise funds for prevention programs, support services and vital cancer research.
Over 50 residents, care staff and allied service members attended with pink cakes, marshmellows, tea and coffee on offer. A $200 hamper created through donations from residents was raffled and won by Rita Radford.
To add to the day’s enjoyment and to raise a further $100, Bruce and physiotherapist Kristen offered to colour their hair. It didnít take very long to raise the money for this to happen.
The Ladies Craft Group organised a stall showcasing a variety of homemade gifts and household items to purchase. The sale was a huge success with all funds raised directly supporting the great cause.
