Life’s not al­ways a pic­nic, but morn­ing tea can help

Isis Town and Country - - News - By JODIE DIXON

CHILDERS’ own CWA is set to host this year’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea on May 26 from 9am to raise funds, aware­ness and to sup­port a great char­ity.

Ev­ery day, more and more fam­i­lies are los­ing loved ones to a dreaded dis­ease, with one in three peo­ple di­ag­nosed with can­cer in their life­time.

Childers CWA branch pres­i­dent Rosie Shut­tle­wood said she would like to see ev­ery­one in town get in­volved this year in the Big­gest Morn­ing Tea.

“Could you imag­ine the park filled with pic­nic blan­kets and bas­kets?” Mrs Shut­tle­wood said.

“I would like to see all the busi­nesses lin­ing Churchill St get in­volved for a great cause.

“I know the lo­cals are big sup­port­ers of all char­i­ties and events, but this event prom­ises to be the big­gest,” she said.

“Our tiny team of vol­un­teers needs some com­mu­nity sup­port to make this pos­si­ble.

“It will be a lot of fun and, if only for a short time, will take the worry of can­cer from the minds of many.

“We all know some­one that is fight­ing a bat­tle and the CWA wants to bring the com­mu­nity to­gether to show their sup­port and com­mit­ment.

“”With all our CWA wor­ries and fears of clo­sure, we will brush that aside to sup­port fam­i­lies in need.

“Even af­ter the fundraiser, the CWA will still be there for the com­mu­nity.”

Mrs Shut­tle­wood is pas­sion­ate about her com­mu­nity and be­lieves it is ev­ery­one’s re­spon­si­bil­ity to do a lit­tle bit for oth­ers.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, phone Rosie on 4126 3092 or 0419 743 307.
