A number of us gathered in the Old Eltham Courthouse for a morning tea that was organised by Dianne Parslow to raise funds for the Cancer Council. It was part of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea initiative, during which thousands of organisations and individuals ran morning tea functions, all with the goal of gathering together over a cuppa and raising money to help beat the disease that affects so many people.
Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is Cancer Council’s most popular fundraising event. Last year $12 million was raised to fund research, prevention and support services for those affected by cancer. Our event raised $308. Thanks to those who attended the event, who made donations to the cause, who provided the food, and who set up and packed up the venue.
