What bet­ter way to cel­e­brate Vol­un­teer Week than with a lunch and to hold it for a wor­thy cause?

One such cause which is re­ceiv­ing grow­ing sup­port each year is the Can­cer Coun­cil of Aus­tralia’s an­nual Big­gest Morn­ing Tea, which has been run­ning for 24 years.

Splen­did au­tumn weather wel­comed guests to Kir­wans Bridge Angling Clu­b­rooms with spec­tac­u­lar panoramic views across the Nagam­bie Lakes wa­ter­ways.

More than 50 peo­ple got to­gether for the 11th year to sup­port the 2017 lun­cheon, shar­ing good food, fun and fel­low­ship.

The Nagam­bie ef­fort raised more than $1000.

The event’s joint co­or­di­na­tor Wendy Ma­son wel­comed ev­ery­one to the fundraiser, and en­ter­tainer Russell Turner had ev­ery­one singing along to his lively reper­toire and Rob McLeod sang for the crowd as well.

Dr Graeme Rat­ten spoke about what peo­ple could do to stay healthy and be aware of can­cer.

He of­fered a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive on the dis­ease and its prob­lems and how peo­ple could cope with them.

Ms Ma­son thanked those who at­tended the Big­gest Morn­ing Tea lunch, those who pro­vided food for the fab­u­lous spread, those who do­nated funds, the angling club and Keith Ir­win, who helped make the func­tion a great suc­cess.

Ms Ma­son said all funds raised would go to Can­cer Coun­cil Vic­to­ria for re­search, ser­vices, pre­ven­tion and sup­port ser­vices.

Ms Ma­son and her team are to be con­grat­u­lated on once again show­ing their sup­port for the Big­gest Morn­ing Tea fundraiser.
