OLIVER Birch was a sea of white on Wednesday, when the iconic store hosted a White Shirt Campaign fundraiser to raise awareness and funds for ovarian cancer research.

About 70 per cent of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer succumb to the disease within five years, a tragic statistic not helped by the fact there is no known test for the early detection of the disease. It’s hoped that by investing in research a test can be found, all funds raised from the campaign will go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation.
