Young Ladies of St Andrew’s

Founded in 2009 by Mrs Joanne Lawson, Young Ladies of St Andrew’s are a group of students working together to make a difference to those ladies in Cairns during their journey with Breast Cancer.

The Young Ladies raise money through fundraisers such as Pink Day, Mother’s Day soap sales and Girl’s Night In. The money raised supports the Breast Cancer Clinic through the purchase of hand-made soaps that are given to ladies after surgery.

The girls work closely with McGrath Foundation Breast Care nurses regarding the ladies’ needs and the best form of assistance. Some of their projects have included making cards, supplying books for the breast care nurses to give to patients, supplying bra vouchers, decorating bags to use for care packages and purchasing items to decorate the quiet room the Breast Care nurses use for consultations.  The Young Ladies also create care packages with items patients might need in a hospital and donate special vouchers for the family to do something together, e.g. movies or bowling etc.

If you are interested in assisting with any of our projects, please contact Mrs Jo Lawson at the College via email
