Bare all in a beautiful brazen bra

THE race is on to find the most creatively decorated bra on the Coffs Coast.

Curves Coffs Harbour is running the zany competition to underline the importance of breast care during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Curves crew is also hosting a Barefoot Bowls/Girls’ Night In on Friday at C.ex Coffs as it busily raises funds for breast cancer research.

“Our club will waive its standard fee of $249 for any woman who shows proof of a recent mammogram or makes a donation to a breast cancer organisation,” said Curves manager Margo McKillop.

“Women in Australia and around the world are motivated by the messages of Breast Cancer Awareness Month to come through our doors and take control of their health.

“This is a promising sign.

“We know from the experience of millions of members in more than 8000 Curves clubs in 70 countries that breast cancer has touched the lives of most women in some form.

“Many women have a friend, relative or colleague who has experienced the disease and the devastating impact it can have.

“Fundraising for breast cancer charities unites the Curves community globally and we’re delighted to be able to support Cancer Council Australia’s invaluable work and research.”

Curves clubs have been fundraising nationally for the Cancer Council for four years and have raised more than $925,000 to fund cancer research and educational programs.

For more information and to RSVP to Friday’s event, please contact Margo McKillop on 6651 1278.
