Colts turn pink for fight against cancer

COLTS Cricket Club will host a Pink Stumps Day and its 2002-03 A Grade premiership reunion at Dudley Cornell Park on Saturday.

The club will raise money throughout the afternoon ahead of its premiership reunion function at 7pm.

Colts vice-president Dean Arnott said the club had a number of activities planned to help raise money for the McGrath Foundation.

“We’ve got a whole heap of pink food organised, a spinning wheel and collection boxes as well,” he said.

“We’re hoping to raise about $900 to $1000 if we can.”

Mr Arnott said everyone was welcome, and encouraged people to dress in pink to support an extremely worthwhile cause.

“It’s a really great event,” he said.

“My wife Rosemary had breast cancer, she’s a survivor and there are other members of the club affected as well.”

The day will run while the club plays its final home-and-away matches against Noradjuha-Toolondo in A Grade and Horsham Saints in C Grade.

Mr Arnott said the club was still trying to get in contact with two of its premiership players – Mick Wilde and Gavan Nunn.

He thanked sponsors John Brennan at Victoria Hotel, Heather and Susan at Horsham Florist and Wayne Watkins at Horsham Lanes and Games for their contributions to the day.
