Mungindi is covered in pink for their McGrath Foundation pink golf day

Mungindi is covered in pink as they prepare for the McGrath Foundation Pink Stumps Day on Sunday.

The Mungindi Golf Club will be hosting the first weekend of the 18 hole competition this weekend so the decision was made to make it a pink McGrath Foundation fundraiser.

There will be a three person Ambrose running for $25 a head which will also cover lunch, where a large smorgasbord will be served.

$10 of the payment will go back to the golf club and the other $15 will be donated to the McGrath Foundation.

There will also be a free family fun afternoon once the golf is completed, with a jumping castle and face painting provided for the children.

This will be the fourth year that Mungindi has supported Pink Stumps Day, but the first time they will be doing so with golf after hosting cricket games on the bowling green at the RSL.

It was started by Kelly Chapman and her partner Garry 'Red' Trindall and it has gotten bigger every year.

The town has already raised over $2000 thanks to bake sales over the last couple of weeks as well as a generous donation from Namoi Cotton.

"It's amazing how generous people are in the grips of a terrible drought," Ms Chapman said.

"People are still putting their hands in their pocket. It's heartwarming."

Ms Chapman said the aim is to create an event that everyone can be a part of and enjoy.

"Both my parents died of cancer and we've been looking for something to do," she said.

"It's hard in a small town, you've gotta do something that fits for everyone so that's when we jumped on with the McGrath Foundation.

"Last year we did bake sales, this year we decided to do golf, try something different."

The golf club has recently finished renovations after receiving a government grant in January.

"It looks magnificent now, it's a good chance for them to showcase what they've got down there," Ms Chapman said.

"The golf club is very keen to hold this, they've been helping out. Everyone has jumped on board."

"It's very exciting and very heartwarming that everyone is helping out."

She said the response has already been fantastic and they are expecting a massive turnout.

"I think we've got nearly 30 teams signed up for Sunday. We weren't expecting anything like that. It'll be a lot of fun, a hit and a giggle.

"Everyone has been touched by cancer, everyone knows someone  who has passed away or is fighting so this is one thing we figure we can do.

"We're just excited it's come around so fast."

The golf will begin at 10am on Sunday, March 3 at the Mungindi Golf Club with the family afternoon activities kicking off at 3pm.
