Goodstart Shailer Park has cooked up a storm for their annual participation in Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea with more than 20 local community members gathering Tuesday 23 May to help raise funds for cancer research, support and prevention.
With many tasty treats to share, the children and educators have rallied behind this important cause for the past 10 years, as one close to their hearts – affecting close family and those in their wider community.
Goodstart Early Learning Shailer Park’s Centre Director Kristy Morgan said that it was always an exciting and important opportunity for the centre and local community to come together.
“Cancer Council encourages us to make each morning tea personal, and we do just at Goodstart Shailer Park because it’s a cause close to our hearts as cancer has personally affected members of our community,” Kristy said.
“Over the years our morning tea has become a much-anticipated event – bringing together more and more members of our early learning community to share a cuppa, have a yarn, and raise funds that we know will make a big difference for those impacted by cancer.
“Our early learning centre is aiming to raise at least $1000 this year, which according to Cancer Council, will pay for an analysis of two gene samples for a research project.
“Our Biggest Morning Tea is only made possible because of our incredible educators and teachers who don an apron for the cause, and children who add their special touch by participating in art and craft to help decorate our morning tea.”
“At the end of the day, this initiative is about bringing us closer to a cancer free future – and when I think about children who are in our early learning centre – they are the very ones set to benefit from the work being done today to fund research, support and prevention.”
Goodstart Shailer Park is one of over 500,000 hosts that get behind Australia's Biggest Morning Tea each year – a community event that raises vital funds to make a big difference for those impacted by cancer. Learn more about Cancer Council via their website: https://www.biggestmorningtea.com.au/
This is just one of many ways that Goodstart Shailer Park supports their local community to help enrich lives, with their next community event being for NAIDOC week as part of the Nangara Group which is expected to attract more than 1500 attendees.
