250 businesses helping to 'Pink Up Mudgee'

More than 250 businesses and organisations have officially joined “Pink Up Mudgee”,  raising money for the McGrath Foundation by turning the whole town pink during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

Businesses supporting Pink Up Mudgee include the South Mudgee Surgery, where all the staff are wearing pink, and BP Mudgee, which last week welcomed a team from the BP and McGrath Foundation who are on a month-long road trip in their pink car. 

Along the way, they are visiting McGrath Breast Care nurses to share their stories, raise awareness of the incredible work they do in their communities, and drive further donation to the Foundation.
