South Perth’s Old Mill to turn pink for breast cancer

SOUTH Perth’s Old Mill is joining the landmarks and buildings across Perth turning pink during October to support awareness for the need to continue research into breast cancer.

The landmark will turn pink until Friday and coincides with a breakfast held yesterday to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Perth Global Illumination Committee chairwoman Jenny Rogers said the research funds would help the foundation move towards its goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.

“We’re excited to see the City of Perth, Parliament House, Notre Dame, and many Western Australian organisations get behind Global Illumination again in 2016,” she said.

“Perth continues to be one of the main cities in the world to embrace a pink blush in October as part of an awareness and fundraising effort for breast cancer.

“It’s well worth a drive through the city, up to Parliament House and over the Narrows Bridge to the Old Mill to take in the amazing pink blaze of lights.”

Notre Dame University Tannock Hall October 1-31
