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.
