For one week in October, Canterbury League Club turned pink to help fundraise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).

During Pink Week, the Club organised many fundraising activities that included staff.

The Bakehouse Café and the Bistro’s cake displays were filled with pink desserts that included pink raspberry mousse, pink cupcakes and pink panna cotta!

$1 from each pink dessert sold during the week was donated to NBCF.

Staff also supported Pink Week by wearing a touch of pink on their uniforms on Friday 19 October.

Many staff opted for pink shirts, ties, accessories and nail polish.

Staff helped raise vital funds through a staff pink raffle and pink lolly guessing competition.

C-Life Health Club got into the theme and turned pink. The gym had the studios decorated pink and a PINK timetable was released for the week that included pink group exercise classes. During the pink classes, instructors and participants wore pink.

$1195.15 was raised which has been donated to the NBCF and will help support the cause.

‘This is the 3rd year that Pink Week has been organised at Canterbury League Club and it is an important cause that has touched each one of us. The fundraiser has meant so much to staff and this year it had been dedicated to Rangi Troy. Rangi Troy was a former staff member who sadly lost her battle with breast cancer,” said Acting CEO Jonathan Brain.

‘In her memory staff raised money to be donated directly to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) which will go towards cancer research, prevention programs and support services.’
