Residents at the Busselton Lifestyle Village are gearing up for a big day of fundraising on November 20.

For the third year in a row it will have a pink bowls day, but this year will donate money to the Cancer Council.

Pink bowls day committee member Bevan Heddle said in previous years the event raised more than $10,000 for the McGrath Foundation.

It all started when Molly Parker suggested to Mr Heddle that there should be a fundraising event to help women in the village who had been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Mr Heddle said they decided to donate to the Cancer Council this year because there were people in the village with other cancers, including his wife who was diagnosed with blood cancer.

The day is set to be a fun one with everyone involved encouraged to wear pink and there will be plenty of raffle prizes and auction items on offer.

Mr Heddle said local businesses had been very generous providing vouchers for the event, including Geographe Auto who have donated free services.

The day is set to start at 10am with a morning tea and some raffle prizes.

Then it will be time for the bowling competition to begin with a lunch and more prizes on offer afterwards.

Mr Heddle said the day could not be done without all of the committee members in Neville Streeter, Molly Parker, Ronnie Treen, Steve Blackman, Ron Staley Ron Nuttle involved.
