Kariong Neighbourhood Centre will host a Biggest Morning Tea on June 1 to raise funds for the Cancer Council.
The day promises fun for the whole family, with fresh baked scones with jam and cream and a kids’ cupcake icing competition.
Visitors will enjoy entertainment by members of the Nearly Vintage choir, a plant stall and the chance to win lucky door prizes.
The event will be run by the centre’s dedicated team of volunteers, several of whom have experienced cancer or had family members affected.
Lyn Mar is a staff member and volunteer at the centre and the driving force behind the Biggest Morning Tea event.
As a staff member she runs the Active Playgroup and Little Big School transition to school programs.
As a volunteer she coordinates the Food Relief program every Wednesday, with a team of devoted volunteers.
“Like most families, my family too has had to endure cancer,” Mar said.
“My husband, father and younger sister were lucky to survive their cancers but I have lost a niece in her twenties to an aggressive cancer and its impact is hard on the family for life.
“So every effort to learn about the different cancers and how we can beat them is in everybody’s best interest.
“And what an easy and fun way to help – come and sit down with friends to enjoy a cup of tea and some fresh scones.”
Biggest Morning Tea: 10am-1.30pm, Wednesday, June 1, at Kariong Neighbourhood Centre, Langford Dr, Kariong.
