Pink stumps day planned
LISMORE District Cricket Association is hoping to finally host its own Pink Stumps Day this Saturday.
The event, which also aims to raise money for the McGrath Foundation, has fallen victim to the weather on two occasions already.
Clubs and players have pledged support for the pink-themed event, which will see fundraising take place at junior and senior matches across the city.

Meanwhile, organisers of this year's Alstonville and District Pink Stumps Day are hoping to smash the $4000 barrier.
Scores of residents and cricket lovers from across the region attended last Sunday's pink-themed fundraiser for the McGrath Foundation.
The event, which was organized by the association, aimed to raise important funds for cancer sufferers and their supporters.
Co-organiser Wayne Garrard said the day, which featured a Super 8 Cricket competition and took place at the town's Gap Road Playing Fields, had collected $3700 so far.
He said further anticipated donations were expected to drive the amount over $4000 and close to last year's figure of $4500.
