Frocking up to fight cancer

WOMEN had a valid excuse to dress to the nines last Friday evening, as they took part in a Frocktober fundraiser.

Organised by Lynne Butters and Justine Boshammer, proceeds went to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.

Both Ms Butters and Mrs Boshammer are wearing a different frock every day in October to raise money and awareness.

"It's a good cause and needs to have its profile raised,” Ms Butters said.

"I have a friend who survived ovarian cancer, so it's always been close to my heart.”

Forty women attended the fundraiser at Urban Paddock last Friday, raising $900.

Ms Butters and Mrs Boshammer have raised more than $3000 in total.
