ALLORA will join communities right across Australia when they don pink on February 22 to fundraise for the McGrath Foundation.

Funds raised ensure that every family in Australia experiencing breast cancer has access to a breast care nurse, no matter where they live or their financial situation.

It is estimated that 150 McGrath breast care nurses are needed to achieve this, only then will every family experiencing breast cancer have access to this optimal care and support.

By hosting a Pink Stumps Day, the Allora community will be helping to make a difference to the lives of families experiencing breast cancer in Australia.

Currently there are 100 McGrath breast care nurses working in communities right across the country, who have so far supported more than 25,000 families experiencing breast cancer.

Event organiser and breast care nurse Athaline Mulhall is encouraging all in the Allora and wider district to grab the family and get your hot pink on, for a fun day out to help the McGrath Foundation raise $1 million.

The cricket action will start at noon with a ladies match, the pretty in pink Warwick Nurses verses the Allora Girls.

The main match gets under way at 2pm with the Allora cricket team taking on the might of the Old Blokes.

Those that attended Allora's last Pink Stumps Day will recall the stunning athleticism on show, especially from the Old Blokes, next month's match promising more of the same.

There will be hot food available, and cool drinks, which will be popular given the weather of late.

Think Pink everyone, gates open for a great afternoon of cricket at noon and entry is free.
