A cuppa for a good cause

DIABETES Tasmania has recently been presented with a cheque for $3,000 by the Inner Wheel Club of Clarence to support the organisations’ Juvenile Type One Diabetes annual camps.

The funds were raised during the club’s ‘50s Music Devonshire Tea event and Christmas raffle, held in late December.

More than 100 people attended the event, where they were served with tea and scones straight from the oven.

The Lindy Mob Performance Troupe provided the entertainment and guests were given the opportunity to learn swing dance throughout the afternoon.

Inner Wheel Club of Clarence president Maree Godleman said that “a great day was had by all”, with more than $1,800 raised on the day, followed by $1,200 raised by the Christmas raffle.

The donation was presented to Diabetes chief executive officer Lisa Burgess during the club’s February meeting.
