Isis Town and Country - - News - By JODIE DIXON

BIG­GEST morn­ing teas are cur­rently be­ing hosted around the re­gion to raise much-needed funds into can­cer re­search.

Childers CWA held a spe­cial event last week in Mil­len­nium Park show­ing their sup­port for the Can­cer Coun­cil

Rosie Shut­tle­wood said it was a great morn­ing and the hard work­ing, ded­i­cated team of mem­bers raised $197.

“We didn’t get the turnout I was ex­pect­ing but nev­er­the­less, I want to thank those that did at­tend,” Mrs Shut­tle­wood said.

Mak­ing her first pub­lic ap­pear­ance since be­ing crowned the 2016 Childers Miss Show­girl, Sarah Perry as­sisted the ladies of the CWA, serv­ing up morn­ing tea.

Ms Perry said the CWA sup­ports many char­i­ties and she be­lieves we all should be more ac­tive in our com­mu­nity.

“I will be join­ing the CWA and I want to en­cour­age other young women to get in­volved,” Ms Perry said.

The Bund­aberg show hol­i­day turned Childers into a ghost town, with many of the do­na­tions to char­ity com­ing from tourists trav­el­ling through.

Mrs Shut­tle­wood said the can­cer coun­cil’s big­gest morn­ing tea is one event the CWA looks for­ward to as it brings the com­mu­nity to­gether.

Can­cer is the num­ber-one killer in Aus­tralia and the morn­ing tea will be cel­e­brated by over a mil­lion peo­ple this year.

“I want to thank all the mem­bers of the CWA for their time and help at the morn­ing tea.

“Our next event will be the Cent Sale, set for July 9.

“The pop­u­lar Cent Sale event will be at the Unit­ing Church and I en­cour­age the com­mu­nity to at­tend,” she said.

They prom­ise to have great prizes and plenty of raf­fles to take part in.

The next CWA AGM is set for July 16 at the CWA cot­tage.
