Community shows support with colour

TO WRAP up a purple powered week, Bundaberg's official Paint the Town Purple Day was held today with celebrations at the CBD Pavilion.

Cancer Council Queensland Relay For Life co-ordinator Angela Childs extended a special invitation to the community and media to attend the festivities.

"Showing your support is as simple as dressing in purple, decorating your workplace, or holding a purple fundraiser," she said.

Ms Childs said 2015 was the first year Bundaberg turned a bright shade of purple with many businesses and locals supporting the event.

"All funds from Paint the Town Purple Week support Bundaberg Relay For Life - and in turn, support Cancer Council Queensland's vital work in cancer research, prevention programs, and patient support services," she said.

The best decorated and purpled-out Bundaberg shop front will win a $500 radio advertising package from Bundaberg Broadcasters, and two complimentary breakfasts for two for upcoming Bundaberg Chamber of Commerce meetings.

Cancer Council Queensland Bundaberg Relay For Life will be held on August 15-16 at Bundaberg Recreational Precinct.
