Mini-Field of Women program

Opal has been a long-standing supporter of Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) since 2005 and we are proud to continue our support through the iconic Mini-Field of Women program across 2021 and 2022.

As the Principal Partner of BCNA’s Mini-Field of Women program, Opal is enhancing the experience of people participating in Mini-Field of Women events in communities across Australia, helping to create greater impact for the program, and demonstrating our support for BCNA’s core objectives.

Opal has taken great pride in working with BCNA to develop new, innovative and sustainable indoor and outdoor Mini-Field of Women event kits, tribute boxes, and tribute booths that are designed to give event participants a private space to write their tributes.

The kit components are made up of at least 75 per cent recycled materials and are designed to be reused and then recycled when they can’t be reused further.

Mini-Field of Women events are an important way to pay tribute to those people in our local communities impacted by breast cancer and Opal is proud to be the Principal Partner of BCNA’s Mini-Field of Women program. You can show your support by registering to host your own Mini-Field of Women event with BCNA.
