Raising awareness and funds

The glamorous creations for breast cancer awareness.

More than 20 residents, and Seasons staff members, from Seasons Living Mango Hill hosted a fundraising afternoon tea for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with a ‘best decorated bra competition’.

Dressed in pink, the residents from the community had an ambitious goal of raising $200 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation at the afternoon tea, which was held on Tuesday 18 October. They exceeded their goal, raising over $600.

“Sadly, a number of our residents have been affected by breast cancer, so it’s a charity close to many of the women and men’s hearts from our community,” Anna Garrood, Lifestyle Coordinator, said.

“The bra decorating competition was a good bonding experience for us all to share stories of the impact cancer has had in our lives, and it helps that we were able to share a few giggles along the way.”

“It’s been a wonderful event and we are really happy with the outcome of the fundraiser for this incredibly worthy foundation,” agreed Bernie Hatton, Community Manager.
