PEOPLE can support the National Breast Cancer Foundation by buying pink nail polish.

HealthShed Castle Hill is running a Paint It Pink campaign this month to help raise funds for breast cancer research and awareness.

People can purchase ulta3 pink nail polish for a gold coin donation, and the business will match donations dollar for dollar.

HealthShed retail manager Kerri Hietbrink said the campaign has been well supported by The Hills community.

“As someone who knows people who have been through breast cancer, supporting breast cancer awareness and research is such a worthwhile and important cause,” Ms Hietbrik said.

“The pink nail polish has been quite popular, but we still have some left so people can continue to support the cause.”

Eric Wong, who is the pharmacist manager, said the campaign is also part of the store’s women’s health month.

The pharmacy recently held an event offering women health tips and handed out goodie bags.

“As pharmacists, we find it very rewarding to use our skills and health knowledge to help people,” Mr Wong said.

“We like to think of ourselves as a health-first pharmacy.”

The pharmacy has been in The Hills for 15 years.

HealthShed Castle Hill was previously known as Good Price Pharmacy before being rebranded in October 2016.
