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.
