GEORGE NEWS - The SWD Eagles Rugby Team wrapped the trees in front of the Outeniqua Stadium in pink today (17 September) to show their support for the Pink Trees for Pauline campaign.
The Pink Trees for Pauline campaign's purpose is to create awareness, unite communities and raise money for people affected by cancer.
Adri van Nieuwenhuizen, the director of the Pink Trees Initiative, along with her husband Abi were excited to see that the local rugby franchise was so eager to get involved.
Adri said, “Pink Trees has already sold over 40km of material this year we have 110 different towns involved in the campaign to date. We can’t wait for the next town to come on board, then we will be on 111, Nelson.”
