Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MORE than $150 was raised from the big­gest morn­ing tea in Eidsvold yes­ter­day, with the money go­ing to­wards can­cer re­search.

Hosted by the Mun­dub­bera Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion, around 20 peo­ple at­tended the event at the RM Williams Cen­tre to en­joy morn­ing tea.

Or­gan­iser Bobby-Leigh Redgard said the event was all about rais­ing money for can­cer re­search.

“We’re giv­ing money to Can­cer Coun­cil, it’s a very im­por­tant or­gan­i­sa­tion, it’s close to my heart as my un­cle had throat can­cer and he’s through it now which is good,” Mrs Redgard said.

“With the $150 raised it pro­vides trans­port and ac­com­mo­da­tion for peo­ple who need to travel for vi­tal can­cer treat­ment.”

They’re hop­ing that they can raise $500, which will go to­wards pro­vid­ing train­ing and sup­port groups where peo­ple can meet and share their ex­pe­ri­ences in an emo­tion­ally sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment.

The Mun­dub­bera Mad Hat­ter’s tea party takes place today at the MCDA build­ing start­ing at 10.30am.
