THE Stuarts Point Community House staff and volunteers were pleased to host a Breast Cancer Awareness Morning Tea on Friday 27 October, with a fun theme of ‘Decorate a bra and wear it on the outside!’

Though originally planned as an outdoor event, the rain, though very welcome, forced everyone indoors where a great spread of sweet and savoury dishes was on offer.

Breast Cancer Nurse Carolyn Cross was on hand representing the Macksville Health Campus and the McGrath Foundation.

“Our McGrath Breast Health Nurses are registered nurses with specialist training that provide support, information, care and counselling,” Ms Cross said.

Also attending was Women’s Health Services Nurse Annette Heather, who was keen to promote the support and services the network provides.

“We have locations at Macksville, Nambucca Heads, Bowraville, Urunga and a new clinic will soon be available within the Stuarts Point Pharmacy, and a Women’s Wellness Morning will be held at Taylors Arm Hall on 4 November.”

Free services include breast awareness and checks, cervical screening tests, pelvic floor assessments, pregnancy testing and post-natal checks, menopause counselling, pregnancy counselling and heart health screening.

Resident volunteer Chris Parke was the talented decorator of the Over Shoulder Boulder Holders’ for the event.

“Many of the brassieres and ‘supporting’ garments/costumes were sourced from the extensive stocks held in the Community House Op Shop,” Chris said.

Amongst those individuals displaying their very resilient sense of humour, Margaret Harradine was declared the unofficial winner with her ‘Shotgun Wedding’ look.
