NSW Police don pink caps for Jane McGrath Day!

08/01/18 Category: Blog, Featured, Featured Bradman, News Posted by:


NSW Police are getting behind the Pink Test by trading their blue hats for pink caps to help raise funds for the McGrath Foundation.

More than 100 police from across the Force will be sporting pink cricket caps at the Sydney Cricket Ground today (Saturday 6 January 2018).

Each of the rostered officers has given up their wages for the day, all of which will be donated toward the McGrath Foundation that raises money to assist thousands of people experiencing breast cancer.

The funds are used to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia who provide physical, psychological, and emotional support from the point of diagnosis, and throughout their treatment journey – free of charge.

The Foundation is currently funding 119 breast care nurses in communities across Australia that have supported more than 60,000 families.

NSW Police Acting Commissioner David Hudson is proud of the officers for supporting the important work of the McGrath Foundation.

“Most of us have been affected by cancer in some way; whether it’s via a family member, friend or colleague, or those who are battling the disease themselves,” Acting Commissioner Hudson said.

“To show our support and help raise awareness and funds our officers are joining the bandwagon and wearing pink.

“It won’t just be our officers joining the ‘pink’ trend, even our Dog Unit and Mounted Unit are joining in,” Acting Commissioner Hudson said.

In addition to the wage donation, NSW Police has created an account for other officers to make a contribution toward the campaign. (Article reproduced @nswpoliceforce
