Two Maclean businesses have joined forces to raise money for breast cancer.
Maclean businesses Ammo Hair and Beauty and Tea on the Terrace staff combined to raise money by hosting a Pink Ribbon morning tea, during Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Owner of Tea on the Terrace, Frances Pye said that the event was very successful.
“It was very well supported with donations from local business houses,” Frances said.
“We had a raffle, with six wonderful prizes donated by Ammo Hair and Beauty, Tea on the Terrace, Heart of Space, Gail’s Gifts, Lola-Sol and the Bake House Yamba. Colleen Newton donated a beaded picture she’d made and Maclean Newsagency donated decorations.
“We also had a guessing competition, which was to guess how many pink lollies in a jar.
“A $2 donation was taken for the morning tea and a gold coin donation for the guessing competition.
“Around $800 was raised during the morning, which will go directly to the Breast Cancer Foundation,” she said.
