BUCCS to swap red for pink

BENDIGO United will swap its traditional red for pink later this month when it plays White Hills in the Bendigo District Cricket Association.

The Redbacks are supporting the annual Pink Stumps Day, but doing so a week early on Saturday, February 15.

Bendigo United's first XI and under-13A teams will wear pink caps for their clash with White Hills, while pink stumps will also be used.

The Under-13A team is playing at Ewing Park, where there will be a BBQ and raffle being run, while the first XI team will be playing at White Hills' KWD Oval.

Following the day's play, the Redbacks will hold a family function at the Bendigo Club from 7pm with a pink theme.

Pink Stumps Day is in support of the McGrath Foundation, with money raised helping to place breast care nurses in communities across Australia, as well as increasing breast awareness in young Australian women.

White Hills will also support Bendigo United's Pink Stumps Day fundraising by contributing $200.
