CRICKET

CRICKETERS in Proserpine will be donning their best pink gear for the annual Pink Stumps Day this Saturday to raise funds for breast cancer through the Jane McGrath Foundation.

This year the club are putting out the call to business houses, organisations, clubs, friends and families to organise their own team of sevens for the Pink Stumps Sevens Challenge.

With pink stumps, wickets, pads and balls, all players need to do is turn up in their best pink gear for a fun day of cricket that will raise money for a very worthy cause.

A full day of cricket and festivities is on offer with junior games in the morning followed by a pink morning tea, barbecue lunch, and an afternoon tea including wine, cheese and bar facilities will be available.

Normal senior fixtures will continue on the day with Canecutters taking on Valleys at 12.30pm on field one while the seven-a-side mixed challenge will start at 1pm on field two.

Club representative Craig Brown said that players of all ages and skill levels are welcome to come along for a game of sevens, which is a relaxed and fun version of the sport.

"You don't have to be a cricketer or have any experience to come and have some fun at the sevens challenge," he said.

"It doesn't matter if you are male or female, just come along and have some fun and enjoy the day."

Inspired by the Sydney Pink Test in honour of the late Jane McGrath, this event will donate all of the money raised to the McGrath Foundation. Donations can be made by visiting pinkstumpsday2013.gofundraise.com.au/page/ProserpineJuniorCricket.
