Weekly Photo Challenge: Community

IMG_7541On a stinking hot day last March, our gorgeous rural community got together for a “Pink Stumps Day” – a fundraising game of cricket run amongst ourselves to raise money for the McGrath Foundation, which funds the placement of breast care nurses around Australia. This was a cause very close to our hearts, with one of our beautiful school mum friends coming towards the end of her battle with breast cancer. Little did I know that less than a month after this day in March, I would be going into bat against breast cancer myself and would be extremely grateful for the breast care nurse who supported me through my diagnosis and surgery!  Once the cricket match was finished, the sausages and cakes gone, and the makeover tent packed away, the local fire brigade paid us a visit and helped kids and parents alike cool off. It was a wonderful way to end the day, where the bond of community was the winner.
