Healthy Ageing Program (Acacia Ridge): 2018 Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea Fundraiser

“Every cup of tea makes a difference.”

Happy 25th anniversary of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea!

On Tuesday 5th June 2018, Inala Community House (ICH) Healthy Ageing Program (Acacia Ridge) celebrated Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea Fundraiser with our valued seniors and other members of local community.

Starting from 10.30am, all were welcome to attend the meaningful event at our Acacia Ridge centre (29 Chardean Street, Acacia Ridge). A gold coin donation was welcome.

Our main aim was to bring our community together to help raise funds for Cancer Council and make a real difference to those impacted by cancer.

Thank you to our ICH team for setting up the decorations and everyone who came bringing a plate to share! Everyone enjoyed the variety of pastries and desserts along with a morning cuppa.

Meet Fay Stafford, a loyal and supportive Healthy Ageing Program (Acacia Ridge) member who had been attending our centre activities for ten years and counting.

For this special event, Fay volunteered to donate some of her personal belongings and beautifully crafted items like greeting cards, accessories, jewellery and more.

I personally wanted to help to generate more interest for this event, so I thought setting up a stall would be a good idea. All proceeds will be donated to Cancer Council. I am a big self-taught craft person. I like coming to Acacia Ridge centre to play cards twice a week. I love making wonderful friendships here, some that have lasted for over ten years. When you get older, it becomes more important than ever to stay social,” said Fay. Thank you again Fay for your thoughtfulness and generosity.

Meanwhile we hosted various fun trivia games and a raffle, as happy attendees walked away with various attractive prizes such as hampers and free activity passes.

Thank you again everyone for your kind participation and support. We were proud to raise $120.50 in total, which will be donated to Cancer Council. You can visit or donate: www.biggestmorningtea.com.au/.
