The annual Biggest Morning Tea at Living Choice Twin Waters is a big day for the village to show support for the Cancer Council of Queensland and this year, both residents and visitors gave generously, raising $4 600.
It is the 10th year that the event has been held and this year’s fundraiser boosted the total amount raised over the years to a whopping $35,600.
Organised by Thelma Richardson and Dorothy Blythe, together with a big team of helpers, the Cancer Morning Tea is always a popular event on the village calendar with many residents donating a mouth-watering array of cakes, slices and sandwiches. Local companies also provide some great raffle prizes and there are always fantastic bargains to be found at the “$1.00 stall”. This year, members of the craft group also took the opportunity to sell some of the items they have been making in preparation for their annual Winter Craft Fair on 22 June.
Thelma paid tribute to all those who had helped with the event and supported the fundraiser. “It shows that this is not only a lovely place to live but that we have wonderful residents too. We couldn’t do it without staff member Dave Forrest’s massive help. It was well worth all the hard work.”
