Biggest Morning Tea @ Eltham Central Pavilion
Jun 1 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

We will once again be part of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, an annual Cancer Council fundraising event. This will be a great opportunity to socialise with other U3A members and will also raise funds to go towards research and provide support for people with cancer and their loved ones. The Cancer Council has provided us with a speaker who will enlighten us on the fundraising and research aspects of the Cancer Council.

This year we are asking members to bring a small plate to share with other members. Tea, coffee and champagne will be provided for those who would like it. Please bring some cash (yes, cash please!) to donate to this worthy cause.

Register your attendance by emailing the Office.
