Organiser Deanne King said they achieved a good result for breast cancer research.

‘We raised $1676, a wonderful effort by court staff, court security, Mandurah police, along with donations from the public,’ she said. ‘Staff wore purple bras or ribbons and had a huge morning tea, supported by local lawyers and police.

‘We especially want to thank the woman who made a donation of $200 on the day.’

Marie Winduss was affected by breast cancer through her mother’s condition.

‘My mother had breast cancer and within five years had both breasts removed,’ she said.

‘It’s great to work as a team towards such great results and I enjoy the feeling of doing something good for women.’

For Gabriela Austin the day touched her personally.

‘I like Purple Bra Day as I believe in the cause, I have two people very close to me who have had breast cancer ” one did not survive and I have witnessed the struggle they had before and after their surgeries, two very brave women whom I love dearly,’ she said.
