Arcare Taigum, along with all Arcare sites across Australia hosted a Biggest Morning Tea to raise awareness and funds for the Cancer Council.
The dining room was rearranged and decorated in the blue and yellow colours.
Clients and their families began arriving and once they were all seated, the morning tea began.
Team members assisted in starting off the morning tea by serving tea and scones, jam and cream, lamingtons, spring rolls, sausage rolls, quiches, sandwiches and of course, teas and coffees.
The Lifestyle team also collected gold coin donations and sold the raffle tickets in the morning.
After the food and drinks were served, the Lifestyle team gave a speech about the Biggest Morning Tea and thanked everyone for attending and for their kind donations.
Towards the end of the morning, the raffle was drawn by Janelle, Arcare Taigum’s Residence Manager.
The lucky winner of a tea set and some goodies was Jean Evans!
Being part of Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea is such a fun and easy way to bring people together to raise funds that will make a big difference to those impacted by cancer.
Clients and their families really enjoyed giving back to a meaningful cause and being part of an event that would positively affect those around them.
