Batters ready in Pink

Mayor Tony Wellington and Cr Jess Glasgow bat up in 2017.

It’s not The Ashes but if you’ve ever wanted to see Noosa Councillors dressed in their finery (pink tutus) to challenge their constituents then head to Kin Kin this Saturday where battle lines will be drawn in the annual Pink Stumps Day.

Kin Kin community spokeswoman Anita Poteri said the Pink Stumps Day provided an opportunity for the local community to participate in the spirit, energy and international phenomenon of the Pink Test.

“By bringing the magic home it raises vital funds to make it a bit easier for families experiencing breast cancer,” she said.

“It’s a great way to get all the Kin Kinians and Noosa Councillors together to have fun for a great cause.

“And it’s always a hoot seeing our Mayor Tony Wellington and Council CEO Brett de Chastel decked out in pink tutus.”

The event raises funds for the McGrath Foundation which aims to ensure every family experiencing breast cancer would have access to a breast care nurse for free no matter where they lived.

At present there is a McGrath Foundation breast cancer nurse based in Buderim who cares for clients in Noosa and surrounding areas but others are required in Nambour or Birtinya.

Each January the Australian cricket team celebrates Jane McGrath Day at the Pink Test at the Sydney Cricket Gound to raise money for breast cancer nurses who provide physical, psychological and emotional support from the time of diagnosis, throughout treatment.

Play starts at 1pm on the field behind the pub and special guest Noosa MP Sandy Bolton will be umpire. Join the cheer squad, wear pink if you want to and join in.
