A Kurri Early Childhood Centre fundraiser brought a well-known face back to town to accept the cheque for funds raised.

MEANINGFUL CAUSE: Back, Kurri Early Childhood Centre educator Gillian Low (holding Mac) hands over the fundraising cheque to Mark Hughes, and at front, Lucy, Aubrey, Henry, Audrey and Zavier.

The centre held a Beanies for Brain Cancer fundraiser for the Mark Hughes Foundation in August, and Hughes himself dropped in last Tuesday to pick up the cheque.

Children from babies up to pre-school wore their beanies and helped to raise $258.50 just from gold coin donations during the week of August 17 to 21.

With a strong connection to Kurri, Hughes said it is great for the foundation to receive the home-grown backing.

“It’s fantastic support coming from my local town,” he said.

“There are a lot of worthwhile foundations out there and for them to pick our foundation to support was fantastic.

“I always love to visit Kurri.”

Educator Gillian Lowe loves football and the Newcastle Knights and thought it was a meaningful cause to get behind.

The centre also lost a little girl to cancer, and the fundraiser was a way of remembering her.

This is the first time the centre has been involved in Beanies for Brain Cancer and they plan to make it an ongoing event.

Hughes thanked all of the children and families for getting involved, and reminds people to keep an eye out for the fundraiser as it will be back again next year.
