Kids show true footy colours

SHOWING THEIR TRUE COLOURS: Marks IGA staff were making no secret of their favourite AFL team on Friday, in support of Fight Cancer Foundation’s annual Footy Colours Day. Staff members (from left) Paula Hassan, Vanessa Lockhart, Kirsten Gonsalves, Bev Reid, Danny Hutchins, Ali Wilson and Rochelle Hunt were proudly decked out in their team’s colours, keen to bring on the September finals action, in which most of their teams will feature. They were also happy to back the foundation’s fundraising efforts to assist cancer patients and their families. Merrijig Primary School was another to support the day.

EACH year the Fight Cancer Foundation asks all Australians to unite and wear their favourite football team’s colours on the first Friday in September and help support the fight against cancer.

The Merrijig Primary School got behind the event whole heartedly, wearing team colours and enjoying traditional AFL half time fare – the hot dog – at lunch time.

For the past 25 years Fight Cancer Foundation has supported cancer patients and their families, with Footy Colours Day one of their main fundraising drives.
Last year more than half a million dollars was raised through Footy Colours Day.
