In Australia, prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men.

We asked if you had the balls to help and we were overwhelmed with donations and the generosity of our community.

The aim was to raise awareness and money to give prostate cancer the finger and we had a ball.

We started with a talk from Prostate Cancer Foundation Ambassador Elizabeth Allen OAM, her message being to get your PSA checked regularly. Remember a PSA blood test is no poke.

We then auctioned and raffled some amazing prizes, had a BBQ and shaved a Willie. We are over $10,500 and we are still counting!

Special thanks to Trundle Central School who donated $130 from their Blue Mufti Day, the Men's Shed BBQ raised $300, Trundle Men's Golf $245, SSAA Black Powder shooters $440, Tracey and the courtesy bus $300 and the freshly shaved Willie raised $670.

Our auctioneer Rob Hellyer had bids thrown at him thick and fast and we thank him again.

Also, a big thank you to the Bush Tucker Day courtesy bus and Trundle Services Club and their staff for a great night.
