An annual fundraiser for breast-cancer patients on the north coast next Saturday (18 October), which began as a house party for 20 friends seven years ago, is being supported by Richmond MP Justine Elliot.
The ‘Girls Night In’ event at the Cudgen Leagues Club from 5pm will feature popular comedian Mandy Nolan.
Mrs Elliot said she was honoured to meet with event organiser Kim Telling recently to discuss the issues facing those in the community living with cancer or support those who have cancer.
‘These ladies, Kim Telling, her daughters Taylor and Brittany and best friend Bronte Rowston are inspirational and their voluntary contributions are invaluable,’ the MP said.
This year’s Girls Night In breast-cancer fundraiser is the eight annual event and has so far raised $69,403.92 since it’s beginnings as a house party of 20 friends in 2007.
A large part of the money raised has been directly used for breast cancer patients in the northern rivers area.
The event can be supported through sponsorship or ticket purchases, call Kim Telling on 0417 769 864.
Just when everything is a political football…put away the football.

That’s great! In Ballina a group of women called “Breast Friends” raise money for local women with breast cancer and donate a considerable sum to the Ballina Breast Cancer Support Group” which supports women to pay for things like car registration, electricity bills, MRIs, PET scans, petrol, bras, etc. As well as emotional support, financial support is often needed.
