Morning Tea’s big bickies
Clarence City Council staff and Councillors rallied together for a worthy cause on June 5, as they hosted a Cancer Council Biggest Morning Tea.
The event, organised to support Cancer Council Tasmania, saw staff members and Councillors unite to raise essential funds and tuck into a wonderful array of savouries and sweets which were either handmade or generously donated by council employees.
More than $600 was raised during the event, and council staff plan to make the Biggest Morning Tea an important annual event on the calendar.
Clarence Mayor Brendan Blomeley, who is also a director of Cancer Council Tasmania, expressed his heartfelt gratitude to council officers for their efforts in organising the event.
“Hosting a morning tea is a simple, fun and delicious way we can all help raise vital funds required to support people who are impacted by cancer,” he said.
“We know that more than 3,600 Tasmanians will be diagnosed with a form of cancer this year. That equates to ten Tasmanians every day who are receiving a cancer diagnosis.
“To help those impacted, Cancer Council Tasmania provides crucial support services and conducts life-changing research. The organisation’s research focuses on understanding the causes of cancer, preventing its occurrence, improving treatment options, and facilitating earlier diagnoses to enhance survival rates.”
