Pink Stumps Day event aims to raise money as no one should go through breast cancer without the care of a McGrath Breast Care Nurse.

McGrath Breast Care Nurses help individuals and their families affected by breast cancer by providing invaluable physical, psychological, and emotional support from the time of diagnosis and throughout treatment.

All funds raised go towards helping the McGrath Foundation to reach their goal of 250 nurses by 2025, to work towards ensuring no one misses out on care.

Jock Maddern said, “A big thank you to all the local businesses who donated towards the charity auction. Western Flat Cricket Club for helping support the event, and anyone who volunteered to help throughout the day.”

McGrath Foundation was founded by Jane and Glenn McGrath in 2005, and every year, a number of Pink Stumps Days are held across the state and country.
