Remember those pink bales dotted round the countryside raising money and awareness for country women who have cancer? $23,000 was raised which will go a long way in supporting women and their families as they live with secondary cancer.
Agpac, the sponsoring company, sold all 3000 kilometres of pink wrap to farmers across the country and a portion of the sales was donated to the charity involved with supporting women, Sweet Louise.
Chief Executive Officer of Sweet Louise, Fiona Hatton, says “A secondary breast cancer diagnosis has a devastating impact on members, their families and friends. We receive no government funding and rely 100% on donations.
We are very grateful that Agpac came up with this idea to help Sweet Louise and we have been humbled by how the farming community has embraced the initiative. We want to say a big thank you to the hundreds of kiwi farmers who have shown their support and purchased pink wrap. It has been wonderful to see New Zealand dotted with pink bales.’
