Thursday the 25th of May is Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.
The day is Cancer Council Australia’s largest and most popular fundraising event of the year. We are excited to announce that our incredible group of aqua ladies are hosting yet another fantastic morning tea again this year!
The event will be running in the café area.
Last year our aqua ladies were able to raise an incredible $2070 for Cancer Council Australia! This year, the ladies are aiming to raise a total of $1500 in funds towards Cancer Council Australia. All donations go towards cancer research, prevention programs and support services.
Donations are now open.
If you’d like to donate, you can speak to our facility manager at reception for more information about how to help.
Our team cannot wait to see you all there!
