Cricketers do it. Footballers do it. Even butchers do it.

Including those Chris English and the team from the Co-op.

The boys are wearing pink for October, Cancer Awareness Month.

“We are trying to raise as much money as we can for breast cancer research,” Chris said on Monday.

“We have a raffle going at the moment. First prize is a small charcoal Webber and a $20 meat tray.

“Second is a $50 meat tray and third is a $30 meat tray.

“We are also having a barbecue on October 21.”

October, Australia’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, provides an opportunity for Australiansl to focus on breast cancer and its impact on those affected by the disease in our community.

Breast cancer remains the most common cancer among Australian women (excluding non-melanoma skin cancer).

Survival rates continue to improve in Australia with 89 out of every 100 women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer now surviving five or more years beyond diagnosis.
