Grafton CWA, with support from Black Pepper (retail store) in Grafton Shoppingworld, held a very successful fashion parade at the Masonic Hall in Bacon Street Grafton, on Tuesday, March 7. Fashion garments modelled during the parade were supplied by Black Pepper, who is a supporter of The Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation [OCRF]. All proceeds from the event went to the OCRF. Models for the fashion parade were: Jacaranda Queen Sharni Wren, Jacaranda Matron of Honour Carol Smith, Annette Douglas and Olive Hannah. Grace Trench from the Bluff Point Quilters group in Lawrence presented the Grafton CWA with a cheque for $500, for the OCRF. Grace also donated a quilt, for the Grafton CWA raffle. Debbie Bowling and Donna Lewis from the ‘Look Good Feel Good’, cancer support group spoke about their work with women suffering from cancer. These ladies assist women with make-up, headwear and wigs to help them with their recovery. Carmel Sanne from Hope Chest spoke about her work with women suffering from breast cancer. Carmel is able to assist women with their new bras and swimwear following breast surgery. President of the Grafton CWA, Lesley McFarlane, wishes to thank everyone who supported the event, which helped to raise awareness of ovarian cancer and funds for ovarian cancer research.
