Throughout the month of October, the Harvey Community Resource Centre and the Harvey Shire Council will be working together to “pink up” the town.

With October being the month for breast cancer awareness, the Pink Up Your Town campaign will see CRCs around the Harvey region raise money for the McGrath Foundation.

Next Tuesday, the Harvey CRC will be holding a Tai Chi morning tea from 9.30am.

“We have an amazing Tai Chi class that meets every Tuesday and generously supports the events hosted at our centre,” centre manager Tracey-Ann Davis said.

“We would like to encourage anyone who would like to try Tai Chi to join in, meet new people and enjoy a fabulous cuppa afterwards.”

All proceeds from the Tai Chi class, sale of pink ribbon cupcakes and a small raffle will be donated to the cause.

“This is a fantastic initiative and one which our centre is proud to be a part of,” Ms Davis said.

“An interview with two McGrath nurses based in Bunbury and two of our local breast cancer survivors will also be screened by all three CRCs through the course of October.”

Having joined forces with the Harvey Visitor Centre and Brunswick and Yarloop CRC, the Shire of Harvey and Harvey CRC hope to make this an annual event.

There will also be a tin sitting in the centres for the month of October for donations.
