Pyjamas worn to work in fundraiser

THEY might have looked like the comfiest workers on Friday and they probably were.

Seven Whitsunday businesses donned their sleepwear for National Pyjama Day on Friday.

The Whitsunday Neighbourhood Centre was stoked to raise just over $700 when they had a fundraising goal of $500.

Community development officer Tamara Noble hoped the day would raise awareness of just how severe the foster situation is in Australia.

"Pyjama Day is an important annual event for the centre, for we have a strong commitment to help all children in our community reach their full potential," she said.

"We recognise the additional difficulties foster children have in achieving this and we fully support The Pyjama Foundation in their efforts to overcome these barriers." So determined to get the message across Ms Noble and administration officer Peita Rollings visited the Whitsunday Shopping Centre to be seen in their pyjamas and also collect donations from community members. Donations can still be made at http://www.the-pyjama-foundation.giveeasy.org/campaigns/team-whitsundays.
