Event:
Take your 5 cents to Lyneham for this worthy cause
Love Your Sister is a non-profit organisation set up by actor Samual Johnson (best known from "The Secret Life of Us") and his sister Connie, who lives in Canberra and has breast cancer. They have organised fundraising initiatives to raise money for cancer research and spread Connie's message of breast cancer awareness. Samuel rode around Australia on a unicycle to raise $1.6M for breast cancer research - and his new goal is $10M.

On Wednesday May 10th, Love Your Sister are forming a massive heart shape, using 5 cent pieces (provided by the Royal Australian Mint), on the netball courts in Lyneham. Supporters from schools, community groups and individuals from all around Australia have donated money for the heart - if you would like to donate, visit any Bendigo Bank and quote 'Big Heart Project' at the counter.

Alternatively, buy a metre of coins from their website:

Lastly you can turn up to the event and add your 5 cent pieces to the heart. The Questacon team will be on hand to work out the logistics of this large scale event. Love Your Sister are hoping to raise $1 million dollars for cancer research.

The day will run between 7am - 8pm.
