Spirit of giv­ing is strong

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

THE res­i­dents at Swan Care in Bent­ley are go­ing to be busy in the kitchen soon, bak­ing up a lav­ish feast to help cel­e­brate Big­gest Morn­ing Tea on Thurs­day, May 28.

Swan Care chief ex­ec­u­tive Gra­ham Fran­cis says the res­i­dents of the aged-care fa­cil­ity were very en­thu­si­as­tic about this year’s event.

“As well as rais­ing money for a very worth­while cause, we be­lieve it’s im­por­tant to join in with com­mu­nity events – our res­i­dents love get­ting in­volved,” Mr Fran­cis said.

“The phi­los­o­phy of giv­ing is def­i­nitely alive and well at Swan Care and we’re very proud of that.”

Since it be­gan in 1994, the Australia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea has raised more than $70 mil­lion for can­cer re­search, pre­ven­tion, ed­u­ca­tion and sup­port.

This year, or­gan­is­ers hope to raise more than $10 mil­lion to fight the dis­ease, which will af­fect one in two men, and one in three women be­fore the age of 85.
