THE Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre (BRICC) was the obvious place to host Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, last Friday morning. Co-organisers Gay and Simone said BRICC had hosted a morning tea last year but it decided to host a bigger and better one in 2015.
“We got more people involved so that we might raise more money,” Simone said.
Gay added that a number of local businesses came on board including Country Casseroles, Café on Sturt, Such N Such, Turret, Brunches, and Cornucopia, “All the ones that are around us locally that staff often go to and they are supporting us back, which is nice.”
The morning tea was open to staff, patients and visitors and many took advantage of the scrumptious goodies on offer, unashamedly plugged as being ‘calorie free’.
The morning tea at BRICC raised $850, which will be donated to Cancer Council Research.
“We would like to thank the businesses who have donated goods today,” the girls added. The morning tea was also an opportunity to show the community what BRICC offers, in terms of cancer treatment and support, for those in the district. Ebenezer St John’s Presbyterian Church on Armstrong Street South also held a Biggest Morning Tea on Friday, which was very well supported. Photos in next week’s paper.
