Members of Narrogin’s hockey community raised $3500 across the weekend for a number of medical institutions as part of the UGSHA’s Pink round.

There was fish and chips on sale during Friday night’s matches as spectators were treated to Lake Grace band, Bale Out, playinglive.

A cake stall and the sale of raffle tickets raised money during Saturday’s matches.

“All of us have somebody we know who’s been touched by cancer ,” said Jodie George, one of the event’s organisers, who dyed her hair pink for the weekend.

“We wanted to show our support and everyone in the community has been involved.

“We’ve had so many donations from local businesses for theraffle.”

Jodie raised $1100 through the Cancer Council’s website fordyeing her hair pink.

From the money raised, donations will also be made to the Harry Perkins Institute for Medical Research, Breastcare WA and local palliative support groups.
