Perth celebrates “Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea”

Perth celebrates “Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea”

The Pilbara Service Centre crew arranged a successful event to support “Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea” held on Friday 16th June.  Everyone knows someone affected by cancer, statistics show that there are more than 1.1 million Australians who are either living with cancer or who have survived a diagnosis.  The Cancer Council is Australia’s leading charity, uniting the community, creating hope and providing support. The funds raised from this event helps Cancer Council save lives through the prevention, early detection, and treatment of cancer.

Well, what an event! It started off small and ended up with enough food to feed an army. The Balcatta Office displayed an amazing “family spirit” and the morning tea was a huge success. Best of all we raised an amazing $574.50 towards a very worthy cause.
