THE Wave’s Biggest Morning Tea continues to grow with local businesses and residents jumping on board to help fight cancer.
Church member Anne Denham said the event had grown from 50 people raising $700 in 2011, to 120 people raising $2500 last year.
“We’ve been amazed at the generosity of the community,” she said.
“A lot of local businesses have been donating to the silent auction every year for the last six years.”
Fellow church member Sandra Cooper urged locals to get to the event and support people facing Australia’s deadliest disease.
She knows only too well that cancer touches everyone in some way. Her sister is currently in hospital fighting it.
“I lost a sister to cancer last year and I’m losing a sister to cancer at this very moment,” she said.
“As a community we can join together to help raise funds for research programs and support services for people facing cancer.”
Ocean Grove musician Andrea Robertson has volunteered to perform at the event, while Emma Glynn, from Flair to Make You Stare, will donate floral displays.
Several local businesses have donated items for the event’s silent auction, as well as the Geelong Football Club.
“It’s a fun morning for a great cause,” church member Carole Adams said.
The Wave’s Biggest Morning Tea begins at The Wave at 10am on 19 May. Entry is $10.
