Hangi-ng out to remember and fight back
Port Hedland’s Cancer Council Relay For Life team “Howrie and the Maori” know how to let it all hangi out, and boy did they do just that at the Finucane Island Club last weekend.
The evening’s event enabled guests to feast on the finest of foods roasted in the traditional Maori “hangi” cooking style as a way of fighting cancer through fundraising and way too much fun.
According to team member Ngarene Brooks, the night was a huge success for a great cause and Kiwi band “Ngati” kept everyone on their toes too.
The team will walk the walk together on August 25 and 26 at the McGregor St oval in Port Hedland, with a core element of the Relay For Life cause being to remember those who have passed away due to cancer.
Relay For Life Pilbara chairperson Denise Bevins welcomes everyone in town to the candlelight memorial on the Saturday evening, August 25.
“This was a particularly powerful and moving part of last year’s inaugural Relay For Life Pilbara event,” Mrs Bevins said.
“You don’t need to be actually participating in the relay itself to come along and share a special time of reflection with us all.
“We have many more teams participating this year, which is exciting, but more wonderful still is that having a special time to acknowledge those we’ve lost can be a time for reflection and connection.”
If you are still interested in joining a Relay For Life team but are not part of one yet, a few teams would love extra members.
