In Australia, the month of May heralds Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea – a nation-wide fundraiser for the Cancer Council. The event has become something of an Australian institution. People all over the country host and attend tea parties to raise funds for this worthy cause. There are also some wonderful, charitable event ambassadors like Bill Granger, Kylie Kwong and Gwyneth Paltrow who help support the initiative.
Early this year, after a bravely fought battle, (often against the odds), my dear friend Lindy, lost her beloved father to cancer. Ian was a wonderful husband, father and friend and he will be sorely missed. In Ian’s honour, Lindy bravely decided to host her own Biggest Morning Tea, to raise much-needed funds to fight this devastating disease.
About 25 people attended Lindy’s tea. Each person brought their favourite tea-time treat as well as a monetary donation for the kitty.
Thank you to all the lovely ladies for contributing! I look forward to next year’s fundraiser. Lindy – this means that you have started a tradition!
