In support of their well-respected colleague Mandy, Bathurst Community Corrections Kicked Ass by raising $1,220 for Bowel Cancer Australia as part of our annual Kick Ass campaign.

On 1st of March, they organised a huge raffle, delicious afternoon tea, and a jiu jitsu session facilitated by Bathurst Correctional Centre’s Custodial staff.

“After recently undergoing bowel cancer treatment for the third time, Mandy bravely shared her story on the Bowel Cancer Australia Facebook page.

The fundraising initiative was leading up to International Women’s Day, given the courageous woman Mandy is, and to urge women to go to the GP if they notice any changes in their bowel habits.

Well done to Mandy, for being such a Kick Ass woman, and to all the Bathurst Corrective Services NSW staff who rallied together to raise money and awareness for such an important issue. Many educational conversations were had, many stories were shared and we shed tears of sadness and laughter“~ Natalie.
