COMMUNTY TURNS OUT FOR CANCER FUNDRAISERS
BRUNSWICK’S Biggest Morning Tea had its biggest event yet last week with records made in both people attending and money raised.
Organiser Marjorie Shier said the Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea at the Brunswick Bowling Club had a record crowd of 140 people attending and a record amount raised for the Cancer Council of WA.
“We had a record amount by a long way, $4858,” she said.
“We as a team would like to thank the generosity of the people who came.”
Guest speaker and Cancer Council of WA fundraising coordinator Jo Suckling spoke about how the generosity benefited WA through cancer education, research and support services.
Volunteers hard at work in the kitchen served dozens of cakes, scones and slices.
As well as donations, money was raised through a raffle, with many locally-donated prizes, and a white elephant stall.
