Com­mu­nity comes to­gether for tea

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

TA­MARA No­ble is pas­sion­ate about the Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre in Can­non­vale and the dif­fer­ence it can make in the Whit­sun­day com­mu­nity.

That’s why last week, the cen­tre held its Big­gest Morn­ing Tea to raise money for Cancer Coun­cil Queens­land.

Ms No­ble is the cen­tre com­mu­nity devel­op­ment of­fi­cer and said the event gave the com­mu­nity a chance to come to­gether.

“We know a lot of clients, vol­un­teers and staff that have been af­fected by cancer or know some­one who has,” she said.

“To­day means a lot to us be­cause it (cancer) af­fects so many peo­ple.”

At­ten­dees also had the chance to win lucky door priz- es, smaller prizes and vouch­ers to restau­rants.

Big­ger prizes in­clud­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion and cruises were up for grabs in an auc­tion.

Ms No­ble said the cen­tre staff were aim­ing to raise as much money as they could.

“We usu­ally aim for $500 but we’re happy with ab­so­lutely any­thing,” she said.
