Mother’s Day Classic attracts huge crowd

A crowd of 75 people enjoyed the brilliant sunshine and clear blue skies on Mother’s Day as they walked and ran to raise funds and awareness for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

After a gentle warm up to the fitting tune of "We are Family" led by Lou Stock, everyone gathered to remember those loved ones touched by breast cancer with a minute silence, introduced by Jack Hassell.

Looking on from the new veranda, the picturesque Lucindale Country Club was a sight to behold as a vision of pink headed down the first fairway.

Runners and walkers of all ages embraced the opportunity for some exercise and a good old catch up as they made their way around the first nine with many continuing past the clubhouse and around the back nine also. 

Once completed the participants received their 2017 Mother's Day Classic medallions from our kind volunteers, Shirley Tregoweth and Valmai Cooper, and also enjoyed some fresh fruit generously donated by The Veg Shed. 

Many also then stayed to enjoy morning tea on the veranda in the beautiful sunshine.

Overall the Lucindale Mother's Day Classic raised $2270 in entry fees and $151.90 in donations. 

Lucindale Mother’s Day Classic coordinator Eliza Handbury said she would like to thank everyone who supported the event and the volunteers who made the day run so smoothly.

“We look forward to the continued success of the Lucindale Mother’s Day Classic in the future,” she said.
