Leaf Bean Machine director Fleur Cassidy will join other local businesses for the fundraiser on June 9, with all money raised going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

A $10,000 target has been set, and the team is already a third of the way there.

‘As a group this is the first time that we have all collaborated to hold such an event and it is exciting to see the response that we have had and people’s generosity to donate prizes or be involved,’ she said.

‘There are a few of us in the group of organisers that have either lost friends or family via breast cancer or know someone who is trying to beat the odds so it seemed the natural thing to do to all donate our goods and services in order to raise money and awareness for the NBCF.
