Central Grampians LLEN partners with Stan Kelly Art Group to host The Biggest Morning Tea.
On May 23rd, Central Grampians LLEN welcomed people in Ararat for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, a cause which raises money to support the Cancer Council.
The Cancer Council offers a range of support services, funds cancer research, promotes healthy living and prevention methods and advocates for laws and policies which reduce cancer risks and improve cancer care.
The Stan Kelly Art Group, a group of locals artists and patrons of CGLLEN’s building, contributed to the morning tea by baking treats for all to enjoy. The morning tea, paired with a fresh cup of hot coffee and good conversation, proved to be a real success.
In addition to the delicious food and hot drinks, members of Central Grampians LLEN and the Stan Kelly Art Group donated raffle prizes as another way to raise funds for the cause. Raffle tickets sold like hotcakes. Prizes included a blanket, tinned food, a home-made succulent garden, an assortment of beverages, stationery, baskets, jams, flashlights and more.
A total of $143.50 was collected from golden coin donations and raffle ticket sales, which Central Grampians LLEN will donate to Cancer Council Australia.
Thank you to all who attended and helped raise money for this valuable cause.
