LAST Thursday May 23, Currajong Disability Services held their own Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser in a bid to raise vital funds for cancer in Australia. CDS raised $106.25 for the Cancer Council.
The event attracted clients, families and staff and a great morning was enjoyed by all. The event has become a regular highlight of the Currajong Disability Services calendar over the last few years and already there are plans for next year.
“It is great for us to be able to give back to other organisations in the community the same way they have given to us,” said Dane Millerd of Currajong.
“With 1 in 2 people affected by some form of cancer before the age of 85 it can’t be emphasised enough how important days like today are.
“Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is the easiest way to bring people together to raise funds that will make a big difference to those impacted by cancer,” said Millerd.
“We have all been impacted by this terrible disease at some point (or will be) so it is vital that as an organisation and as individuals we support days like today.”
The idea is simple, just get your friends, colleagues or community together over some tea and treats, and help fund Cancer Council’s life-saving research, prevention, support programs, and information.
Many across the region and the country host their own morning tea their way: big or small, at work or home, sweet or savoury – every morning tea makes a difference!
