Relay For Life raises funds for the Cancer Council’s research, education, support and advocacy programs, with the Cessnock community having contributed more than $700,000 since 2008.

This year’s relay will be a new format, running from 10am to 10pm, instead of an overnight event like previous relays.

One team that has taken part in every Cessnock relay is ‘Le Krasey Krew’ from Kearsley Public School.

It began as staff at the school who had had brushes with cancer wanting to participate and give back to a cause they felt close to.

“It was an event we all felt quite passionate about,” team captain Kathy Pynsent said.

From there it expanded into friends and family, all who held some connection to Kearsley Public School.

Last year, Le Krasey Krew raised around $4000, but the most they have raised in one year is up around the $8000 mark.

The group has had many memorable moments at relays over the years, but the most unforgettable being the enjoyment that they’re had.

“It’s a fun thing,” team member Melva McLennan said.

“You get a lot out of it,” Mrs. Pynsent added.

Mrs. Pynsent and the school’s administration manager Lesa Weekes have been part of Le Krasey Krew since they formed and said the biggest thing they have realised over the years is just how many people are affected by cancer.

“You don’t realise how many families it’s touched,” Mrs. Pynsent said.

“Until you see the candles,” Mrs. Weekes added.

But they encourage anyone and everyone to get on board and participate in the day that is fun for the whole family.

“Everyone should do it just for the experience,” Mrs. Pynsent said.

Le Krasey Krew will hold a car boot sale at Kearsley Public School on Saturday, September 5 from 8am to 2pm. Sites are $20.

The team is also planning a movie night fundraiser at Maitland Cinema (email [email protected] hotmail南京夜网 for more information).

What did you most love about living in Koroit?

So many things I do today have stemmed from opportunities I had in Koroit. My very first gig was at Mickey Bourke’s Hotel. My state-wide CFA family started with volunteering at the Koroit Fire Brigade. Koroit will always feel like home.

If you could live anywhere where would you choose?

I’ve haven’t seen enough of the world to decide! I think I would just live on the road if I really could.

What is your favourite holiday destination?

Best holiday I’ve been on was living in a Fijian village. Beautiful people! Memorable experience!

What are you reading at the moment?

The Art Of Creative Thinkingby Rod Judkins.

If you had a million dollars what would you do with it?

Travel, buy some beautiful guitars, build my own recording studio and buy a super duper motor home to live out of!

What is something people might not know about you?

I collect troll dolls.My cousin gave me my first troll when I was eightyears old.At last count there were 347.

If you could choose to go back 100 years or forward 100 years what would you do and why?

Fast forward! I would love to see what music people are listening too in the future. That would be wacky.

If you had all the time in the world to pursue and perfect any hobby what would it be?

I would love more time to pursue the drums. I’ve got my drum kit in my room and once I get on I struggle to get off.

When and where are you your most happiest?

On the roadI feel entirely whole, calm, relaxed and completely free and on a stagewhen I feel like I’m truly alive.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

You’ll never be ready. Now is as good a time as any.

Do you have a motto you live by?

The oneI often find myself repeating when things get tough is “everything happens for a reason”. Another favourite is “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”. I like to feel alive.

Bendigo is one of 42 stores which arepart of the redundancy program.

A spokesperson for the company said the redundancies wouldgive Myer the flexibility to reduce staff hours during quieter periods.

“To continue to achieve high standards of service in the future, we are changing the mix of permanent and casual team members to achieve greater flexibility, so we can align our workforce with customer demand and adapt to changes in store traffic flows,” the spokesperson said.

“This new model will give Myer stores the ability to have more flexible hours available for peak periods such as Christmas and stocktake, while ensuring appropriate levels of service during quieter times. This is critical to meeting the expectations of our customers.

“This is part of a significant change to the way we approach customer service. Our future success will depend on our ability to have the right people in place at the right time to delight our customers every time they visit our stores.”

A Myer spokesperson said there was no target for redundancies at the Bendigo store.
