Cleve hosts Biggest Morning Tea

The Cleve Bowls Club was one of many places across the district to hold a Biggest Morning Tea to raise funds for the Cancer Council.

About 65 people spent the morning socialising and eating handmade baked goods and drinking tea and coffee at the Cleve event.

A variety of local businesses lent their products and talents to the day.

Tea samples were provided by Gifted at Cleve.

Local boutique store Mint Fusion enlisted the help of some community members to put on a fashion show for the guests using their clothing and providing a variety of fashion tips for onlookers.

Denise Millard, Glenda Evans and Roslyn Schumann wowed the crowd with their colourful and multi-layered outfits.

A raffle was held, with prizes donated by the Cleve Pharmacy, Cleve Hair Centa and Noble and Frank Jewellery.

Overall the event raised $890 for the Cancer Council.

Funds raised will be going to a variety of cancer research and support programs.

The Cancer Council contributes significant funds to research into treatment and prevention of a variety of cancers as well as advocacy and information programs to raise awareness and reduce risk.

Cancer patients can also seek information and support through the organisation.

Country people who need to travel for treatment can access support with transport and accommodation through the Cancer Council.

The Cowell IGA will be hosting a trading table today, Thursday May 30 and tomorrow for the same cause.
