Garden party blossoms
The Chinchilla Cancer Council and Chinchilla Garden Club have joined forces to hold the Biggest Morning Tea and Garden Day raising money for cancer research. It was a perfect morning filled with flowers, food, and friendship. Pictured are Gemma and Lauren Ruddy with Cooper Kurtz, Raylene Harris, and Maddison Kurtz.
VIBRANT flowers and tantalising treats were just part of the Chinchilla Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea and Garden Day.
The event, held on Monday at the garden of David and Raylene Harris, was all about raising money for cancer research.
Chinchilla Cancer Council chairwoman Lorna Gadsby said the group had held the event in Fuller Place for years but decided it needed a change of location, and was thrilled with the result.
“(It’s) fantastic, we’ve sold over 140 tickets so far,” Mrs Gadsby said.
Attendees were treated to a morning tea, lunch, guest speaker, a lucky door prize, and admission to the beautiful Harris garden.
Mrs Harris said: “The aim is for people to come and mingle, walk the gardens, talk with people.”
The Biggest Morning Tea will be held again in Fuller Place in May.
