Friends’ fundraiser

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

FRIENDS of Cancer Coun­cil WA raised $10,000 at its an­nual Big­gest Morn­ing Tea held at the Royal Fresh­wa­ter Yacht Club this month.

Cancer Coun­cil Re­search Grant re­cip­i­ent Dr Eve­lyn De­plazes spoke to 160 guests about her work re­search­ing the pos­si­ble use of spi­der venom as an anti-cancer drug.

Fundrais­ing man­ager Betty Cot­trell said the event was an op­por­tu­nity to help the Cancer Coun­cil to con­tinue its work for peo­ple af­fected by cancer.

“We sim­ply could not pro­vide this as­sis­tance with­out the sup­port we re­ceive from our won­der­ful fundrais­ers through events like Aus­tralia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea,” Ms Cot­trell said.

The of­fi­cial date for Aus­tralia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea is Thurs­day, but events can be held through­out May and June.
