Inverell Breast Cancer Support Group will be baking some delicious homemade goodies to sell at a Pink Ribbon Day street stall on Friday, October 25.
Situated outside Inverell IGA, along Byron Street, all money raised on the day will be sent away to support research and to raise awareness about breast and gynaecological cancers.
Sweet treats like biscuits, slices and cakes will be for sale, made specially by the dedicated and passionate members of Inverell Breast Cancer Support Group.
President Trish Keitley encouraged anyone who wanted to get baking and make donations of food, cakes or saleable items for the stall to drop them down before 9am.
"The stall is to support Pink Ribbon Day, actually the whole month of October is about raising awareness and money for breast cancer research.
"As a group we run to support women and children Inverell with breast cancer and other cancers but this stall will raise money directly for research," she said.
For those who would like to support the stall by purchasing a treat, or making a donation, can drop down to the stall any time after 9am until all food items sell out.
Inverell's Breast Cancer Support Group have been a rock for so many local people facing cancer battles. Not only do they provide financial assistance for those travelling for treatment but also moral support.
The group meets on the second Thursday of each month at the Inverell Hospital's community meeting room. All are welcome to attend and find out more.
According to the Cancer Council website, the annual Pink Ribbon campaign aims to raise awareness about breast and gynaecological cancers, as well as raise funds for prevention programs, support services and vital cancer research.
Statistics show around 50 women in Australia are diagnosed each day with breast or a gynaecological cancer.
BreastScreen NSW will station its mobile unit in Inverell on October 21. The huge, pink van will be located in the car park on the corner of Campbell and Evans Streets.
Women aged between 50-74 can call 13 20 50 to book a free screening. Twenty minutes every two years could save a life.
