St Andrews Toowoomba Hospital central ward perform a lot of colorectal surgery, deciding they would like to celebrate what they do and raise much needed awareness for bowel cancer through a variety of fundraising activities during Bowel Cancer Awareness Month.

“We turned the ward red and hung apples from the ceiling. We had a wonderful balloon installation and the staff wore red scrub tops for the month! We also did a bake sale on Red Apple Day alongside selling Apple Ribbon Pins and we held an information night with our colorectal surgeon Dr Scott Mansfield which was wonderful,” said Brooke.

 “The team would like to say thank you for allowing us to be involved in Bowel Cancer Awareness Month. It has been a pleasure raising awareness this year and we look forward to future involvement with Bowel Cancer Australia.“ Brooke added.
