Esperance Senior Citizens host Australia's Biggest Morning Tea

More than 60 people took to the Esperance Senior Citizen Centre on Thursday morning, May 23, raising more than $950 for the Cancer Council at Australia's Biggest Morning Tea.

The event, organised by the centre's committee, is part of an annual initiative to help those affected by cancer and included a fashion show and prizes from local boutique Secret Wishes.

According to Senior Citizen Centre vice-president Ellen Saltmarsh, the event has been running for more than a decade and is an opportunity to raise much needed funds for the nation's peak independent cancer authority.

Centre support officer Joeleen Wilson extended thanks to members of the committee for their efforts in making the event a success.

"The wonderful members of the committee organise it and they've been busy baking and preparing and getting ready for a busy morning tea," she said.

"I'd like to thank Secret Wishes because they've been awesome and all of the ladies involved, from taking the tickets to baking and organising for today.

"They've done a really wonderful job."

The Centre thanked Brumby's Esperance for donating baked goods for the event and Secret Wishes for generously distributing discount vouchers and contributing a $100 donation.
