On Thursday 24 May, the Junior Primary Staff supported the Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea hosted by Miss Lucy Badzim.
The Cancer Council is the only Australian charity to work across every area of every cancer, ranging from research to prevention and support. Each cup served throughout the Biggest Morning Tea held each year makes a difference. $18 provides 20 information packs on treatments and practical advice to Australians affected by cancer ranging to $1000 raised which pays for an analysis of two gene samples for a research project.
The Cancer Council works extensively to offer a range of services to support anyone affected by cancer. The organisation funds more cancer research than any other non-government organisation in Australia. In addition, the Cancer Council develops programs that encourage and empower people to lead healthier lifestyles to help reduce the risk of cancer.
The CGGS Junior Primary Staff gathered as one on the morning of the 24 May in the Junior School staffroom for a breakfast at 7:00am, followed by a silent auction with all winning bids placed supporting the Cancer Council directly.
To conclude the day, a raffle was also run in support of the event. The Junior School staff raised a total amount on the day of $1700. This amount was donated directly to the Cancer Council to raise much needed funds for ongoing cancer support, research, prevention, and advocacy.
The love and support from all the CGGS Junior Primary Staff members was most certainly felt on the day.
