The ever-popular Pink October is once again set to hit the town and organisers are asking everyone to “paint the town pink”.

The fundraiser started several years ago with pink rosettes and pink t-shirts sold to raise money for the Broken Hill Breast Cancer Support Group, and spokeswoman Sharon Hutton said they had a new order of pink t-shirts in for anyone who would like to buy one.

The volunteers are operating from the former homeware store next to Cafe Kona at the plaza and during next month it will be open Monday to Friday and Saturday mornings.

But they will also be open tomorrow morning for those who want to get in early.

“We have a new order of t-shirts and pink aprons. The t-shirts are $35 and the aprons are $10,” Sharon said.

“We will be open Saturday from 10.30am to 3pm to sell rosettes, shirts and more.

“Then we will begin opening during the month of October.

“We encourage everyone to come down to support the fundraiser.

“We have lots of merchandise; scarves, stubby holders, hats and we have hand-held fans for those with hot flushes.”

There will also be cake stalls held during the month.
