Birdsnest goes pink for a good cause

The team at Cooma business birdsnest were pretty in pink on Friday as they helped raise money for Pink Ribbon Day and Girls Night In.

Birdsnest was bursting with pink from balloons, flowers, hats and of course clothes as the team raised money for the Cancer Council.

The girls put their own spin on a 'Girls Night In' with their own pink themed day and very own 'Birds' Night In'.

There was food and drink with surprise guests 'Kath and Kim.'

All the money raised from Girls' Night In events will help Cancer Council fight breast and gynaecological cancers through prevention programs, support services and world-class research.

For example, $10 can help produce a cancer information book that provides clear and accurate information about specific gynaecological cancers, $50 can help pay for Cancer Council Helpline calls that can inform and reassure women about their cancer diagnosis, $100 can help provide a room for the night for women who need to stay away from home to access treatment and $500 can go towards funding a grant for new research into ovarian cancer.

These breakthroughs aim to reverse the confronting statistic that one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85.

"Girls Night In is a great way to raise important cancer awareness and funding for all women's cancers while having a fun night in with your girlfriends," Cancer Council Australia's chief executive Professor Ian Olver said.

"Many of us have been touched by cancer in some way. Supporting this event means you will be making a profound difference to the thousands of women affected by cancer each year, through increased research, prevention, and the support services we provide throughout Australia."
