Tea raises nearly $200
Childers CWA members support community events and fundraising
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.
