Barefoot Bowlers Support Breast Cancer Patients at the Port Melbourne Bowls Club
The Greens of the Port Melbourne Bowls Club are set to become pink all over on Sunday 10th November at a special family friendly Barefoot Bowls fundraiser to provide breast cancer patients with free services at the Think Pink Foundation Living Centre in St Kilda Road, Melbourne.
Karen Hitchings, an Ambassador for the Foundation and event organiser, said, ”The Port Melbourne Bowls Club have swung their support behind the Think Pink Foundation to create a great family day out for bowlers of all ages and all standards.
With Club players on hand to help, even if you’re a novice you can kick off your shoes, learn a new skill and join in the fun!”
Since opening nine years ago the Think Pink Foundation Living Centre has assisted over 3000 women and their families with free services, providing a special sanctuary at a difficult time.
Think Pink clients have an opportunity to access services such as free wigs, counselling with a Breast Care Nurse, walking groups, yoga classes, social occasions such as art therapy and information seminars on topics such as ‘Getting Back to Work’, along with a ‘Supporting Blokes’ program for partners of breast cancer patients.
All of this and more is offered free of charge at the Think Pink Living Centre at 390 St Kilda Road and funded by events and donations.
Test your bowling skills, have fun with friends, meet new ones, win prizes and enjoy the outdoors all while supporting a worthy cause.
