Westminster club supporting community

THE Westminster Warriors Soccer Club will turn pink on Saturday for its Annual Pink Day.

The purpose of the event is to show support for people in the community affected by breast cancer, at the same time helping to raise awareness and vital funds.

With nearly 16,000 women and around 150 men predicted to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year in Australia, chances are someone in our local community has or will be affected by breast cancer.

Every day 43 women will hear the words: "You have breast cancer''.

Twenty-one Westminster teams will be playing at their home grounds at Redbank Plains Reserve on Saturday.

Pink is the colour of the day on players' uniforms, soccer balls, food and decorations.

Information on breast cancer will be available as well as donation boxes to raise much needed funds.

Games start at 8am with the last match kicking off at 7pm.

The feature game is a Ladies Division 1 match at 5pm - a local derby against Whitehill.

"The annual day was a fun way to unite our sporting group for a special cause,'' player and club spokesperson Lauren Herring said. "All players involved find it very rewarding to be a part of.

"The club is urging everyone to get behind Pink Day. It is a great opportunity for the whole community to head down to the Redbank Plains Reserve with a splash of pink and support not just the teams competing on the day, but also to support locals affected by breast cancer.''
