Traders will be pretty in pink


PINKING Berwick is only weeks away and the organising committee is seeking support from traders.
Member of the committee Harry Hutchinson said it was time for traders to get on board for the Saturday 16 November event.
“We’re calling on more people to start waving the pink flag and start collecting show bags,” he said.
Beno’s Restaurant began distributing the show bags containing decorations at 5.30 last night (Wednesday) to be put up in shop fronts next week.
Jenny Prowse, member of the committee and the Pink Smurfettes, said most traders were already on board but the committee wanted the entire street ‘pinked’
“We are really hoping the whole street gets involved,” she said.
The committee has also recently confirmed a tribute field of women.
“We hope everyone comes and writes notes for those they have lost or who are suffering,” she said.
“It will be just wonderful with the big Veronica and field of women at bottom of her will be very moving and very special.”
The Pinking Berwick event will be held on High Street Berwick from 10am to 3pm on Saturday 16 November.
The event will feature lots of entertainment, activities Veronica the Pink Lady, a jumping castle and showbags.
It is the second time Berwick has gone pink for breast cancer awareness.
Pinking Berwick will raise for Breast Cancer Network Australia and the Pink Smurfettes for 2014 Weekend to End Women’s Cancers benefiting the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
