Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

Cups of tea, friendly chat­ter and fun were the or­der of the day at the Yar­ra­wonga Friends in Com­mon Cuppa for Can­cer last week.

An in­cred­i­ble $12,000 was raised on the day, with thanks from Yar­ra­wonga Friends in Com­mon Pres­i­dent He­len Glasheen to ev­ery­one who sup­ported the event.

“It was an amazing event which raised $12,000, a por­tion of which was sent to Can­cer Coun­cil Vic­to­ria,” Ms Glasheen said.

“Many, many thanks to the Mul­wala Wa­ter Ski Club, in par­tic­u­lar Cathy Ran­dell, and all the staff who each year go out of their way in so many ways to make this a spe­cial day for us.”

Mul­wala Wa­ter Ski Club Pres­i­dent Len Lang­ford pre­sented a cheque for $1000 to Friends in Com­mon in sup­port of the fundrais­ing ef­fort, a ges­ture very much ap­pre­ci­ated by the group.

“Thank you to the many busi­nesses who do­nated goods and vouch­ers for the spin­ning wheel, and who also or­dered morn­ing tea, which was de­liv­ered to each of the par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­nesses,” Ms Glasheen said.

“We would like to thank very sin­cerely the stu­dents from Sa­cred Heart Col­lege, who gave up their time to as­sist with the spin­ning wheel.

“They are amazing young peo­ple who are great am­bas­sadors for their school. Thanks Marg and Kerrie who ac­com­pa­nied the stu­dents and who kept the whole thing ‘spin­ning’.”

On be­half of Friends in Com­mon, Ms Glasheen also thanked Yar­ra­wonga Health and Kae Kennedy who pro­vided more than 400 scones and the many, won­der­ful mem­bers of the com­mu­nity who were very gen­er­ous in bak­ing cakes or mak­ing slices and sand­wiches to pro­vide a beau­ti­ful morn­ing tea.

Thanks also to oth­ers who as­sisted on the day by sell­ing raf­fle tick­ets and door tick­ets or helped with plat­ing the morn­ing teas.

“A very big thank you to those of you who at­tended the Mul­wala Wa­ter Ski Club, your pres­ence and sup­port en­ables us to con­tinue help­ing those in our com­mu­nity who are un­der­go­ing treat­ment for can­cer,” Ms Glasheen said.
