Truck driver Terry Atkinson stood out in the best way when he rolled into Sunday's Pink Cars and Coffee in his beloved Scania Prime Mover with a bit of pink flair adorning the front.
In support of Pink Up Mudgee in October, organisers of the monthly car enthusiast event encouraged car lovers to pink up their cars as best they could and give in support of the McGrath Foundation and breast cancer research.
In the news:
Terry also came to Sunday's Pink Coffee and Cars with $250 cash in hand after putting the call out on a Scania Trucks Facebook page and promising to donate $5 for every like up to 50, and within an hour he'd hit his goal.
Sundays event marked the third week of Pink Up Mudgee, and its creator Hugh Bateman said he was happy with how everything has gone so far.
"It's going very, very well. We've got over 100 businesses that are registered for Pink Up this this year. And we're really excited about the fact that that's happened because it's been a traumatic year for for everybody - both businesses and people, Hugh said.
"We've got the pink Cars and Coffee here today. We also have the pink races next Saturday and then on the Sunday we've got the pink golf day. It's been very successful so far and were very happy with what's happening.
"We've got people in outlying areas supporting us too, the Hargraves General Store did a fantastic job, I think. It looks it looks absolutely phenomenal. Were really happy with that.
"It's the engagement of the whole community. Pink Up started in Mudgee and the community gets behind it every year, it's great to see."
