With style and whimsy, the donated fashion was carefully displayed by volunteers so bargain hunters could easily find their sizes in clothing, shoes, bags, jewellery, and items all donated by the community.

Local, Margot Case, summed it up, “I bought so many lovely clothes, shoes, bags (yes I know I have too many) but at these amazing prices it’s hard to not buy.”

The funds raised will support research and actions to help women with ovarian cancer, to raise awareness and to improve outcomes for future generations.

Ovarian cancer is the eighth most common cancer in Australia.

About 1580 Australian women are diagnosed each year.

The ‘Pearls of Port Stephens’ group have had a strong start to the year, continuing to support the community through great fundraising activities and donations that make a difference.

“Buy my wardrobe” was a theme for the day, as locals snapped up donated fashion bargains.
