THE monthly Oberon Community and Farmers' Market has done its bit for the McGrath Foundation cause.

The market, which was held on Saturday at the Oberon Showground, featured pink stallholders and a raffle with proceeds to be donated to the McGrath Foundation.

A spokesperson from the market committee thanked "all of our lovely stallholders and market-goers for supporting Pink Up Oberon".

"A combined total of $500 was raised from the raffle and donations," the spokesperson said.

"This money will be donated to the McGrath Foundation to help them in placing breast care nurses in communities across Australia."

Raffle money next month will be donated to Movember to help fund projects on men's health problems such as prostate cancer and mental health.
