There’s a big message in tiny figures

GREYS Beach Reserve will be pretty in pink on Saturday.

Members of the Shoalhaven Breast Cancer Support Group will set up 290 pink lady silhouettes at the reserve and there will be a larger special guest.

Veronica, the five-and-a-half metre high national breast mascot, will also grace Greys Beach.

Local group president Denyse Davey said the day represented a meaningful show of support for women and families affected by breast cancer.

“Each time a woman hears she has breast cancer, those around her in the community are also affected,” Mrs Davey said.

“Getting support for women and families affected by breast cancer is an important issue in our community.” 

From 10am, community members can participate in the event and take the opportunity to leave personal messages of support.

Shoalhaven Mayor Joanna Gash might attend the event.

Afterwards the group will hold a lunch at the Nowra Golf Club for which places are still available. 

For information on the day, call Mrs Davey on 0467 320 420.

According to the Cancer Council, breast cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in Australia.

In the Shoalhaven 68 women each year are diagnosed with the disease.

The Cancer Council recommends all women over 50 years of age have a mammogram.
