A ROSE planting and morning tea at Portland District Health on Thursday will celebrate children and connections between health professionals and mothers in the community.
The Little Ray of Sunshine rose will be planted as part of the Australian Breastfeeding Association’s 50th anniversary celebrations. All mums and their support people are invited to attend, with the event starting at 11am.
The bright yellow hybrid tea rose was bred specifically for the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) to help promote its mum-to-mum support services, and “celebrate the little bundles of joy in parents’ lives”. It is capable of surviving all sorts of conditions and has a pleasant scent.
