Clients, team members, families and volunteers took part in the very important cause.
Testament to Craigieburn’s generous nature, the community raised an incredible donation of over $1,000 to support the cause.
These funds go towards research, prevention and support services.
In addition to the morning tea itself, the community also took part in a raffle with over 40 prizes; plus a bake sale.
The delicious bake sale was put on by ‘Make n Bake’, a small baking facility employing students with a disability through offering a school-based traineeship in Cert. II in Food Processing. Through this traineeship, students obtain confidence and the skills required to gain employment opportunities in the future.
The cookies they made were sold for $2, with $1 going to Make n Bake and the remainder going to Craigieburn’s fundraising efforts.
The event was thoroughly enjoyed the whole community and the efforts that team members went to in organising it was greatly appreciated.
Ted commented, ‘It was quite the feat to pull of such an extravagant event.’
Elaine added, ‘It was a lovely morning. I was very impressed that everyone was served so quickly with their cup of tea and coffee given the great number of people. I haven’t eaten my biscuit I bought yet, I’m saving it for after dinner tonight.’
A big thank you to the local stores who contributed to the success of the event with donations they generously offered.
These stores included Bunnings, Highlands Florist, Terry’s Tortes, Craigieburn Supersaver Chemist, TK Max, Priceline, Hothlyn Drive Bakery, Coles, Woolworths.
Also a big thank you to general services manager Stav who went and picked up all of the goodies, as well as Kayla and Hayley from the lifestyle team who put on the wonderful event.
