LAST Sunday the Ex-Servicemen’s Cricket Club proudly hosted a Pink Stumps Day at Hayden Drexel Oval.
Ex-Servicemen’s Cricket Club has joined over 1000 Australian community cricket clubs by turning hot pink for a day to help the McGrath Foundation raise funds to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia and increase breast awareness in young Australian women.
Early in the cricket season a highly motivated committee led by Rachael Croese, was appointed to steer the fundraising efforts for another year.
All the hard work paid off when the formal Pink Stumps Day event was completed on Sunday, a day when pinks shirts could be seen scattered all over Hayden Drexel Oval.
A tightly contested women’s game of cricket was played and provided entertainment for all the supporters who turned up to get behind this fantastic cause.
The pink stumps committee would like to thank the major sponsor Radicool Airconditioning for donating a Panasonic inverter aircondtioner as the major raffle prize, which was drawn and won on the day.
The club also acknowledges and appreciates every sponsor, donor and supporter who got involved again this year.
The committee is busily counting up the donated proceeds and invites any person to make a last minute donation online via the Go Fundraise website.
To find Ex-Servicemen’s, do a search on an individual event with the name Rachel Croese.
The club would be more than pleased to receive any size donation
