Sweet treats fundraiser beats target
Tea, coffee, cake, and biscuits were all the more sweeter at Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea at Narrogin YMCA, with donations going towards Cancer Council research.
The initial goal of $200 was smashed according to organiser Sam Kempton, with $356 being donated to the Cancer Council from the event last Thursday.
“This is the first time we’ve hosted the Biggest Morning Tea here, and judging by the response today it’s been a success,” he said. A gold coin donation and raffle tickets were sold to raise the money.
According to the Cancer Council, the Narrogin YMCA raised enough money for transport and two nights of accommodation at Cancer Council lodges for patients and their families.
Nationally, money raised by the morning teas also helps to fund SunSmart school programs, information packets, volunteer training and gene samples for research projects.
YMCA staff were thrilled with the money they raised.
