The Club Hotel in Marton is holding a "Pink Ribbon Brunch" on May 17 to raise funds for research for breast cancer.

Hotel owner Jasleen Singh said the hotel's dining room was a beautiful venue and a special luncheon would be fantastic.

With nine women a day in New Zealand diagnosed with breast cancer every bit of support helps the cause, she said.

"I think it's important to try and make difference for the women in this country.''


Brunch will be served from 11.30am with the cost of $25 a head.

Jasleen said 20 per cent of the takings would be donated to the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.

"We are very happy to run an event like this for the women in Marton and New Zealand.''
