The Kameruka Black Cockatoos will splash Lord’s View Oval with a bit of colour Saturday for the fourth annual Pink Stumps Day. 

The club has been a passionate supporter of raising awareness of breast cancer and have raised more than $3500 for the McGrath Foundation over the past few years. 

The club will also hold the third all-women’s T20 match from 9am on Saturday. 

“Kameruka will take on Eden from 9am and Kameruka will be looking to try and break the two-year winning streak of the girls from Eden,” event organiser Joe Weller said. 

Following the women’s match there will be a division two game between the Cockatoos and Tathra from 1pm. 

Everyone is encouraged to throw on a touch of pink and head out for the day.

“Plenty of available space at Lord’s View Oval so bring along some chairs, a picnic blanket and enjoy a great day at the cricket supporting a great cause,” Mr Weller said. 

There will be the two matches showcasing some local talent but also featuring a good splash of pink and plenty of family fun as well as raffles on the day. 

The club will also have a full canteen running with a barbecue available all day as well as tea coffee and wine and beer available at the bar. 

If you can’t be there on the day, but would still like to support the cause, you can donate online at pinkstumpsday2018.gofundraise.com.au/page/JoeWeller.

Mr Weller said the Kameruka Club would also be inviting past players to join in as an inaugural “Old Boys” day to share some stories from their hey day and join the camaraderie.
