The breakfast was held on the shores of Fingal Bay at Saltwater Restaurant on Sunday 27 October where attendees dressed in pink to celebrate the lives of those affected by the disease.

At the start of the day just over $3,000 was in the kitty but by the end of the morning, with a variety of fundraising games, raffles and activities, the total was well over the $7,000 mark.

Ryan Hards, one-third of the breakfasts organising committee which also included Jenny Biscan and Ashleigh Parkes, was blown away by how much the community got behind the event.

“We’ve been overwhelmed with the support and the turnout,” said Mr Hards.

“Breast cancer affects so many people we know and love in the area and it’s amazing to see the level of care in helping us raise this money for a fantastic cause.”

The funds raised will be directly invested into world class research that has seen the NBCF save over 44,000 lives since its early beginnings in 1994.
