Good food and good tea for a good cause

OVER one hundred and fifty dollars was raised from the biggest morning tea in Eidsvold with the money going towards cancer research.

Hosted by the Mundubbera Community Development Association (MCDA) around 20 people attended the RM Williams Centre for a morning tea.

Organiser Bobby-Leigh Redgard said the event was all about raising money for cancer research.

"We're giving money to Cancer Council, it's a very important organisation, it's close to my heart as my uncle had throat cancer and he's through it now which is good,” Mrs Redgard said.

"With the one hundred and fifty dollars raised it provides transport and accommodation for people who need to travel for vital cancer treatment.”

They're hoping that they can raise five hundred dollars which will provide training and support groups where people can meet and share their experiences in an emotionally supportive environment.

The vice president for MCDA Mel Loakes was also in attendance.

The Mundubbera Mad Hatter's tea party takes place on Thursday May 25 at the MCDA building starting at 10:30am.
