Funds flow from Pink Silks race day

THE Coffs Harbour Racing Club Pink Silks Ladies Day Committee presented cheques to the recipients of the funds raised at this year's event last week.

“This was the third year that the Coffs Harbour Racing Club had used this fun family race day to raise awareness and funding” said Pink Silks Chairperson Caroline Bleechmore. “The previous two events generated nearly $60,000 and this year raised a further $27,000.”

The committee presented cheques for $9000 to North Coast BreastScreen, the Coffs Harbour Women's Health Centre - Post Natal Depression Project, and the Palliative Care Service Coffs Harbour Health Campus. North Coast BreastScreen will use their money for the purchase of additional mammography equipment. The Palliative Care Service provides an outreach service to support people who are suffering in the last stages of an illness and funding will improve access to services to assist women suffering post natal depression in the Coffs Harbour area.
