Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea at Chev
Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea at Chevalier College was an opportunity for friends and colleagues to get together over a cup of tea and enjoy a bite to eat, while raising much needed funds to help beat cancer. The funds raised from Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea events help the Council to continue its vital work in cancer research, prevention and support services. The Cancer Council is the largest independent funder of cancer research in Australia. In 2014, research grants through Cancer Councils totalled more than $65 million.
Following a tradition at the College, the Science Department hosted our Biggest Morning Tea on Friday 29 May. The food in the main staffroom was abundant and delicious, ranging from hearty roast beef sandwiches to a home-made rocky road, including a famous ‘Chili con Queso’ that makes an appearance at the event every year. We were missing, however; Joan Saunders, who planned, organised and ran this event for many years. Inspired by Joan, we were pleased to continue hosting our Biggest Morning Tea and we wish Joan all the best in her retirement.
Last year, The Cancer Council raised over $11.9 million to help beat cancer. This year, they are hoping to raise $13 million. Chevalier College was able to contribute $553.95 – $100+ more than last year!
