Cricket: Hillman club, Baldivis school up for Pink Stumps

THE Hillman Cricket Club and Baldivis Secondary School will step up to the crease and take part in the McGrath Foundation annual Pink Stumps Day.

It will be the fourth year that the Hillman club has taken part in the event aimed at raising funds for breast cancer support.

Pink Stumps Day ambassador and director Tracy Bevan challenged the rest of the community to go pink and is encouraging everyone to participate.

“This is a great way to bring the magic of the Pink Test to your home town or suburb while having fun, showing off your cricket skills and raising money to fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia,” Bevan said.

Founder and former Test cricketer Glenn McGrath said the event played a vital fundraising role to help achieve the foundation’s mission of ensuring every family impacted by breast cancer had access to a dedicated breast care nurse,
