Booby prizes at aged care
A QUICK look around the activities room in Grafton Aged Care yesterday would have given the casual observer the impression the place had a fascination with boobs.
It would have been a fair assumption.
Staff and some residents donned bras of all shapes and sizes - including the sea shell-inspired Serenity by the C (cup), Booby Licious, the imitation cow teat-decorated Udder Bra, the fried egg Why Bother Bra and Cup Cakes - to help raise awareness of breast cancer.
Recreational activities officer Colleen Wiblen said it didn't take long after they started naming bras before other staff began offering their suggestions.
"The residents find it stimulating," she said.
"We have a lot of fun here, and this was about having fun and raising awareness.
"The only way to make people aware is to talk openly about it."
Next year's theme, prostate cancer, could pose some more difficult issues of good taste.
