Pink Day raises over $600

By Jared Prestwidge

THE Squires family are happy to announce that November's Pink Day was a huge success, raising $644 in support of diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma research.

Lockington Consolidated School raised $452 for the cause through baking and selling cupcakes while their students dressed up in pink outfits.

FoodWorks Lockington also raised $192 by donating $1 for every iced pink treat sold.

Danielle Squires, who founded the event after her daughter Monique passed away from DIPG, said she could not be more grateful for the support from the Lockington community.

“Thank you to everyone that helped bake pink cupcakes, bought a pink sweet from Giddings or donated to The Cure Starts Now Australia,” she said.

“We miss Monique every day and we want to help other children to have a better chance fighting this horrible disease called DIPG. That is why research is so important and together we can only hope to find a cure.”
