Thumbs up to display
IT IS a long time since I have written a few words for the Letters page, but I thought it important to send special messages to the local community and further afield about the importance of Breast Cancer Month.
It was wonderful to walk down Stirling Terrace and look at the display that Toodyay Op Shop had produced to promote breast cancer awareness.
As far as I know, they were the only ones who were involved, but I apologise to those who also may have participated.Read more
How many people came and recognised this display? There were so many and of course Facebook went ‘off the radar’ so to speak.
Friends who had succumbed to this disease wanted to share that they were overwhelmed with the response by the local op shop wanting to be involved.
To the volunteers who gave up their time to share their concerns and compassion, and the ladies who brought so much joy to the visitors who enjoyed the display and bought their friends to enjoy it, you gave hope to some of those who were in a part of their life they did not wish to be and wanted to share that they loved what Toodyay was doing.
If we can save one person from breast cancer we can say “we have achieved”.
