Biggest Morning Tea

Condobolin Tennis Club gathered at their clubhouse to raise funds for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.  L-R: Lil Lukins, Karyn White, Lois Black and Marie O’Neill. KTAustralia’s Biggest Morning Tea celebrations were held across Condobolin last week, with an impressive number of different local organisations raising funds for Cancer Council Australia with a selection of delicious mid morning snacks.
First off the mark on Tuesday May 24 was the CWA at the Western Plains Regional Development Office.
All the usual morning tea treats were on offer and a raffle was drawn with 100% of the proceeds going to the Cancer Council.
$350 was raised at the event and four different people took home raffle prizes.
Wednesday May 25 saw Lindy Hall at Condo Clothing bring along homemade lamingtons and providing cups of tea for a gold coin donation.
The total amount raised for the day was $221, which included Lindy contributing $5 of every item purchased in the store on the day to the Cancer Council.
“It’s something simple for a great cause,” Lindy said.
Thursday May 26 saw a whole host of organisations offering morning tea around town, with Cafe Romo raising around $700 and offering an incredible selection of cakes and slices to all those who made a donation.
At The Condobolin Aboriginal Health Service’s morning tea, approximately $220 was raised with staff and members of the public enjoying an array of sweets in the organisation’s meeting room.
Thursday also saw the Condobolin Tennis Club, Condobolin High School and Quota having morning teas of their own.
Quota raised an outstanding $710 with 78 morning teas being served and Beatrice Hamilton winning the raffle.
The Tennis Club raised $440 and the high school raised $162.50.
Wrapping up celebrations for the week on Sunday was Happy Daze Coffee Lounge with a morning tea, raffles and giveaways and a grand total of approximately $500 being raised.
A big congratulation also goes to all the other organisations around town not mentioned in this article, and a big thumbs up to everyone who donated to such a worthy cause.
