FOUR Horsham College students are on a mission to raise awareness of breast cancer and domestic violence.
Year nine students Jane Pennant, Lucy Schmidt, Brooke Crabtree and Alex Harding will host a Girls’ Night In on Wednesday to raise money for the Cancer Council.
Alex said women would be pampered by the Body Shop’s Sharee Kemp and make-up artist Janine Papst.
“We want to raise money for breast cancer because people close to us have been affected,” she said.
“We’d like to make it a mother-daughter night so that both mums and daughters have an understanding of breast cancer.
“There will also be a focus on domestic violence so we will have a video on healthy relationship tips.
“Anyone can come along and have some fun so we can raise some money.”
The Girls’ Night In will be between 6.30pm and 8pm at the Wimmera Trade Training Centre in Baillie Street, Horsham.
Cancer Council Victoria has called on Wimmera women to hang up their heels throughout October and substitute a night out for a night in.
Spokeswoman Deb Stringer said hosting a Girls’ Night In was easy.
“Simply register your event, invite your closest friends for a night in and ask them to donate what they would have spent on a night out to the Cancer Council,” she said.
“All money raised will go towards the Cancer Council’s research, prevention programs and support services for women’s cancers.”
