Cakes for a cause
The team at the Shire of Ashburton found a good excuse to sample a smorgasbord of treats when they hosted Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea last Friday, raising more than $1200 for cancer research.
The Shire also raised an additional $200 through ‘casual for a cause’ Fridays during the weeks leading up to the morning tea.
Organiser Wendy Parish said the Shire would continue ‘casual for a cause’, raising money for a different organisation each month.
“Each Friday we wear jeans and takes turns bringing in something for morning tea,” Ms Parish said.
“It’s a fun way to raise funds for worthy organisations.”
Next month’s ‘casual for a cause’ will support Beyond Blue for Depression and Anxiety. For information on Beyond Blue visit www.beyondblue.org.au.
