For a period of 13 years the Well Women’s Centre successfully hosted the annual Pink Ribbon Breakfast fundraiser. During this time and with the support of BHP, a huge amount of money was raised for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. This event and the support of breast cancer is particularly close to our hearts as a women’s health organisation. We are extremely proud of the efforts and the success of these events due to the generosity and compassion of our amazing Port Hedland community.
In 2018, due to the success and ongoing support, we took a leap of faith and decided to brand our own event and raise money for our local families. The PINK PILBARA BREAKFAST was born and it turned out to be the most successful event we have ever had. We raised a HUGE $38,000 and donated this to a Pilbara owned and run Not For Profit who support Pilbara families going through cancer.
We are extremely excited to take our annual event into its second year and will be again focusing on our Pilbara – specifically Port Hedland – families who are affected by cancer.
The Well Women’s Centre have been hosting a local Cancer Support group for over 12 months. Facilitated by two of our own staff members who are cancer survivors, we have been able to fill a gap in cancer services in our own community. Going forward and with the generous help of our supporters, we plan to continue working in this space and filling the gaps of all people in Hedland affected by this troubling illness.
We are excited to make this announcement and we are thrilled to have so much support and positive feedback on this inspiring change. So here it is. Save the date this year on October 18th for the Hedland Well Women’s Centre 2nd PINK PILBARA BREAKFAST!
