Cricket club raises $519 for cancer support
Southern Spirit Cricket Club has raised $519 for the McGrath Foundation through its 2020 Pink Stumps Day.
The day was held to raise funds to support the Foundation's goal of ensuring women across Australia can access a breast care nurse no matter where they live.
The club held this year's Pink Stumps Day at Col Gooley Field at Umina on January 11.
For the first time, the Club opted to run the event in the style of Women's T20 cricket and faced off against the Women's team from Narara-Wyoming Cricket Club.
To boost fundraising, the Club arranged an auction with hundreds of dollars worth of prizes donated by local businesses and services, as well as a raffle which featured a selection of retail, beauty and dining prizes.
A highlight of the auction was a ball signed by Australian cricketing legend Shane Warne.
Players and spectators donned pink in support of the day.
Club president Mr Anthony Clarke said it had been a day to remember.
The Club's fundraiser is still active on the Jane McGrath Foundation website for anyone wishing to donate.
