The team (pictured) is Pam Collier (swimmer), Kay Bailey (trainer), Barb McIlvan (swimmer) and Bev Ellis (manager). The cinema was the troupes only appearance in Alice Springs. Kellerman, who lived from 1886 to 1975) was also a vaudeville and film star, and writer. She was one of the first women to wear a one-piece bathing costume, instead of the then-accepted pantaloons, and inspired others to follow her example. She is often credited for inventing the sport of synchronised swimming after her 1907 performance of the first water ballet in a glass tank at the New York Hippodrome. She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and is featured in the National Pioneer Women Hall of Fame on Stuart Tce Picture: SUPPLIED Kathryn and Sean Loader were among the people supporting the breast cancer fundraising barbecue Sarah Hinton and Coby Walton at the barbecue in aid of breast cancer research TOP LEFT: Cassie Holland and Nicole Oaklands at the barbecue ABOVE: Ellie Brown and Jamie Mawhinney supported the breast cancer fundraiser LEFT: Aleesha OHanlon, Lelly Pawape and Katelyn Dunn at the barbecue David, Lisa and Thomas (front) Smith supported the breast cancer fundraising barbecue on Sunday Heather Wells and Zahra Abdu at the breast cancer fundraiser held at the Alice Springs Golf Club Leighton Thomas and Jonno Hinton, who are travelling with Samuel Johnson, on his record-breaking mono cycle journey around Australia, at the barbecue
