Successful morning tea

By Benalla Ensign

Benalla Breast Cancer Support Group held its first fundraising morning tea last thursday, with nearly $900 raised.

The event was attended by 30 ladies (and a couple of men, too), and great fun was had by all.

One-hundred and eleven dollars was raised for Cancer Council Victoria from the gold coin entry donation, with the Lucky Door Prize of a beautiful camellia and a gift voucher being won by Keren Stokes.

A large number of fabulous raffle prizes were donated by local businesses as well as individuals, and almost everyone went home with a prize.

There was also a sale table and at the end of morning tea most people purchased an extra plate of food to take home for later.

The raffle and sales raised another fantastic amount of $780 for Breast Cancer Network Australia.

Following this success, the Benalla Breast Cancer Support Group is now planning on holding a larger event in Benalla during October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The group is looking for the kind donation of a venue for an even bigger morning tea.
