Thank you for supporting our PINK fundraiser

Posted on Wednesday, 12 October 2022

For one week in October, Canterbury Members and guests were encouraged to indulge their sweet tooth for a good cause – raising awareness for breast cancer and much-needed funds for National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).

For the week 1-9 October, a total of $517.05 was raised from the sale of pink desserts and patron donations. Staff joined in the fun by wearing a touch of pink on Friday and hosted a staff morning tea with donations going towards the final tally.

To finish PINK Week fundraiser on a sweet high, Canterbury has dollar-matched the donations, taking the total to $1035.

“Breast cancer is the second most diagnosed cancer in Australia. All funds raised during Pink Week will be donated to NBCF for research into early detection and preventative treatment of breast cancer. We are thankful to everyone who donated, bought a pink treat, and showed their support to our fundraiser,” said Greg Pickering, CEO of Canterbury League Club.
