Raising a cup against cancer

04 Nov, 2015

Joining in the fight against cancer, Seachange residents raised nearly $10,000 for the Cancer Council Australia’s annual Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser. 

More than 300 people attended the fundraising lunch organised by the community’s social club at the resort’s Country Club for a morning of fun and entertainment. 

Social Club Fund Raising Co-ordinator Katrina Godbold said the campaign was close to the hearts of many of our residents who had family or friends with cancer or were battling the disease themselves. 

“Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea was a wonderful opportunity for residents to join together to raise vital funds to support the fight against cancer and shine a light on the importance of cancer awareness,” she said.

We were lucky to have our hard working social club arrange for renowned singing group Duo Diva to wow the crowd. Comprising the talented Lisa Beamish and Kathleen Procter Moore, the duo performed songs from a range of genres including opera and Celtic. 

The occasion saw residents, friends and local retailers come together to donate some wonderful prizes for the event. It was another wonderful example of how Seachange residents are embracing the community spirit.
