Kingaroy Westlink Pineview Stage 2 players were enjoying the pink vibe on Pink Stumps Day

March 3, 2023

South Burnett junior cricketers turned out in pink last weekend to support a very special cause.

The teams were playing to raise funds  for the McGrath Foundation, which supports breast care nurse Sue Cox in the South Burnett.

Sue assists women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer during their treatment and recovery afterwards.

There were also prizes awarded for the best pink outfits – for players and supporters!
