Colourful team to fundraise
TWEED cricket teams will go pink next weekend in support of the McGrath Foundation.
Murwillumbah, Terranora and Cudgen will do their bit to support breast care nurses as part of Pink Stumps Day next Saturday.
The clubs have received free team kits for the occasion, containing pink stumps and bails, plus pink cricket ball, wicketkeeper pads, caps and sew-on badges. Spectators have been also asked to come to the party by dressing in pink when watching LJ Hooker League games on the weekend of February 19.
There will be fundraising activities on the second day of the Murwillumbah versus Terranora clash, and Cudgen’s game against Byron Bay.
The clubs have each entered the draw to have a legendary Australian cricketer like Adam Gilchrist or Glenn McGrath attend Pink Stumps at Murwillumbah or Kingscliff.
An evening fundraiser will be held at the Murwillumbah Diggers Services Club from 7.30pm (DST).
McGrath, the chairman and co-founder of the McGrath Foundation, said Pink Stumps day was an opportunity for communities to get involved in the Sydney Pink Test and money raised would help lift the number of breast care nurses nationally.
