The Alexandra Senior Citizens group hosted its first Pink Ribbon Breakfast on Friday to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand.

Co-ordinator Jo-Anne Ireland was credited by those attending with organising a hearty breakfast but said it was a team effort.

‘‘I don’t do anything alone,’’ she said.

The group has gatherings throughout the week at Alexandra Memorial Hall in Skird St, with Friday gatherings often involving food, Mrs Ireland said.
