A morning tea held at the Manjimup RSL Hall as part of the Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea campaign has raised more than $1600. The Manjimup Country Women’s Association and the Manjimup Family Centre joined forces to organise the morning tea with a goal of raising $1000 for the organisation. The funds would go towards cancer research, support services, prevention programs and advocacy. The morning tea included many sweet and savoury dishes, hampers and other donations provided by residents and businesses, with the hampers and donations being used as prizes for raffles and games played during the morning tea. About 55 people attended the event and contributed to money raised through online donations before, during and after the morning tea. Manjimup CWA president Belinda Wintergreene said the morning was a success, with universally positive feedback from by attendees. “I’ve had nothing but feedback that everyone enjoyed themselves, the food was exceptional and that they enjoyed the raffle and games,” she said. “I want to thank everyone who helped out some way and everyone who came out on the day. It was a very successful day to say the least.” She thanked those who attended or contributed to the event with donations, as well as the Manjimup RSL branch for donating the hall as the venue for the morning tea.
