The Hornets will don pink guernseys on Saturday to raise money for the Kim Walters Foundation.
Aspley is going pink this weekend for breast cancer research.
The Hornets will don pink guernseys in their matches on Sunday , to raise money for the Kim walters Foundation.
Sunday will be the first day of its kind held by Aspley, after a board member’s daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year.
Hornets president, Tony Tucker, whose company Explosive Sportswear, supplied the jerseys for the day, said it would be an extra significant day for the club.
“The fact that the strip they’re wearing is pink puts a focus on the cause, so I think it will add extra motivation for the players,” he said.
Tucker said it was important for footy clubs to get involved in causes like this, as a key part of local communities.
“Because we are a community-based footy club and we have a lot of young mums and girls involved with the sport and we want to show we put things back into the community.
As well as raising funds for the foundation, Tucker said he hoped the day would help continue to generate awareness of the wide-reaching impact that breast cancer still has on Australian society.
“We want to continue to raise awareness of this disease and show that as a whole the footy club is supports community events,” he said.

As well as donning pink jerseys, the club will also be holding a high tea on the day.
