Woolgoolga Guru shines light on breast cancer

YET another Coffs Coast icon is lighting up in support of international breast cancer month.

Woolgoolga's Guru Nanak Sikh Temple will have a distinctly pink hue each night in October, joining the Big Banana which went pink on October 1.

“The lighting up of these icons is part of a global illumination to mark international breast cancer month,” the president of Titivators Coffs Coast, Maureen Shaw, said.

“We're doing it because I thought it would be great to have our icons lit up. We're over the moon about it.

“It's about breast cancer awareness, and it reminds women to have mammograms.”

She said local Sikh people, who were no strangers to breast cancer in their families, had thrown their support behind the initiative.

Mrs Shaw is also the North Coast Ambassador for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, which will benefit from a $500 donation from the Woolgoolga Sikhs.
