It’s now Spring in Tasmania… and then comes October. Or as we like to call it… PINKtober.

Colour Your World: PINKtober

by Judi Adams

The Hobart Volunteer Committee of the National Breast Cancer Foundation is encouraging local firms to make pink their store fronts, venues, websites, work spaces or windows for PINKtober 2014. This is a wonderful, low-cost way to show support for the breast cancer awareness campaign during the month of October here in Tasmania.

We’ve already garnered the support of the Hobart City Council. Pinktober will again see the Hobart Railway Roundabout Fountain shine brightly in pink hues for a month to mark the awareness campaign.
