This year marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Cancer Council event, “Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea” and whilst the official day for the event was May 24th, those who wish can sponsor the occasion at any time throughout May or June. As it so happened, local resident Julie Parlett hosted her Biggest Morning Tea on the very last day of that period and, with the generous assistance of her friends, along with the members of BIDCA, Julie set the event up at Brennan Park where all who wished were able to buy an array of cakes, scones or muffins as well as enjoy a sausage sizzle and a drink from the BIDCA stall.

Julie told me that, as a survivor of cancer, she was holding the event as a way of giving back for the tremendous support which she received during her battle with the disease. She said that Sharon and Gary Parsons of BIDCA along with her friends and family had all helped her to organise the morning tea to raise funds for the Cancer Council.

Julie Parlett raised funds for theCancer Council

Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is known as an opportunity for family, friends, and workmates to get together for a cuppa and some delicious food as a way of raising funds to help those who are affected by cancer. During the morning, many passers-by took the time to stop for a cuppa and a snack as well as purchase a few tickets in the raffle which offered a variety of prizes that had been donated by generous local businesses.

With the morning’s success as motivation, Julie is already planning her 2019 Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea. Congratulations Julie, our fundraising efforts are to be commended and they exemplify the caring nature shown by the community at large.
