Mayor and Mayoress to host Biggest Morning Tea - 25 May 2015
Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga, Councillor Rod Kendall, will be holding a fundraising morning tea on Thursday 28 May at 10am to help raise funds for the Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea (ABMT).
Cr Kendall said the Biggest Morning Tea concept was a simple way to raise vital funds for the Cancer Council.
“One in two Australians are diagnosed with cancer by age 85, but every dollar raised helps fund the Cancer Council’s vital research, prevention and support service programs,” Cr Kendall said.
“Last year the Cancer Council raised more than $11.9 million to help beat cancer and the target for 2015 is $13 million.
“Just by making a donation and enjoying some scones and a cuppa we can all help make a difference.
The Cancer Council is hoping to get more than 36,000 people involved to host a morning tea this year. To register to host your own morning tea head to www.biggestmorningtea.com.au.
