Hivesville goes pink for Aussie match

GRAB your pink shirt and cricket gear and head along for some Australia Day weekend fun.

A McGrath Foundation Pink Stumps backyard cricket game will be held at the Hivesville Country Markets on Sunday, January 27.

Coverty Creek Community Development and Social Club president Garin Muirhead said all were welcome at the fundraising event in support of breast care nursing.

South Burnett Regional Council Deputy Mayor Kathy Duff will be heading up a team, and councillor Ros Heit will also be taking to the field.

"We feel that donations of this manner are of high value to communities with a tangible result of direct services being provided and we get to have some fun,” he said.

Sue Cox is a specialist breast care nurse based in Kingaroy at the Community Health Centre.

"However our support and all proceeds will go directly to the McGrath Foundation,” Mr Muirhead said.

The Proston CWA will donate the profits from their market stall and donations were also collected at the recent rail trail community meeting in Proston.

"We are hoping for a good attendance in support of the first Hivesville Country markets for the year,” he said.

Participants are encouraged to wear all shades of pink and be ready to play the match after the coin toss at 8.50am.

The Hivesville Country Markets will run from 7am to 12noon on Sunday.
