The Parkes community are encouraged to join the fundraising efforts in the lead up to, and during October, when Pink Up Parkes members will be working towards raising funds for the McGrath Foundation Breast Care Nurses.
The group are welcoming Expressions of Interest from the community to be part of the Pink Up Parkes Committee. Contributions large and small are welcome and there are many different opportunities to contribute.
A short EOI can be filled in and submitted and the link to the EOI can be found via facebook and Instagram @pinkupparkes or by contacting the Secretary, Marg Applebee. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, 20th June, but you are welcome to contact us at any time.
There are currently 200 McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia, who have supported over 123,000 families since 2005. It costs around $140,000 to fund a McGrath Breast Care Nurse for a year including training and development.
We are fortunate to have a McGrath Breast Care Nurse based in Parkes, supporting patients and their families in Parkes, Forbes, Condobolin, Trundle, Tullamore, Tottenham and Peak Hill. We have so many reasons to be fundraising.
Pink Up Your Business; Pink Up Your School; hold a Pink Up event; fundraise; talk about it with your friends; attend a Pink Up Parkes event; donate and support the Pink Up Parkes Campaign on social media.
Keep checking on our social media and in the paper. For further information email email@example.com or contact PUP Secretary, Marg Applebee on 0418 611 053.
