Local Markets Support Cancer Crusader

Just in time for Mother’s Day, head down to the Proserpine Community Markets (PCM) on Sunday, April 30, and grab some handmade goodies.

Taking place on the old St Catherine’s Campus, the Proserpine Community Markets is home to a diverse range of local and handmade stalls, with food vans galore, face painting, raffles, local buskers, and live music and so much more, always supporting a local charity or cause.

The upcoming markets, on Sunday, April 30, will be supporting local Proserpine mum, Jenn Johnson, a breast cancer battler.

Jenn is a 30-year-old single mother, and she was diagnosed with grade three breast cancer in her right breast and lymph nodes in late January, after finding a lump in her breast back in November.

Currently, Jenn is undergoing her second round of chemotherapy, and proceeds will go towards supporting her lengthy journey.

The upcoming market is a great opportunity to support a local family and also many small businesses in the region.

There will be a sun catcher making workshop with Whitsunday Creations, and a Mr Poppas Balloon making workshop and much more so make sure you have the markets on your radar for Sunday.

PCM is held quarterly and open for all local makers to participate in.
