In 2022, it was estimated that 88,890 males and 73,180 females were diagnosed with cancer in Australia. There would be very few (if any) people who haven’t been affected by cancer in some way. The survival rate from this disease has been rising steadily over the past 30 years, increasing from 52% to 70% since the mid-1990s. Thanks to cancer research and prevention strategies, more and more people are surviving cancer every year.

Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is Cancer Council Australia‘s most popular fundraising event and the largest, most successful event of its kind in the country.

On 20 May 2024, PALS joined forces with Barooga Sports Club to host our own Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea fundraising event at Thompsons Beach, Beach Café in Cobram.

The day was considered a great success with the team selling over 100 cups of hot beverages to raise a total of $515.65!

This money will go directly to the Cancer Council and the phenomenal work and research they do to help eradicate cancer and provide support services for those affected by the disease.

Thank you to everyone involved and especially those who came down for a cuppa for this excellent cause.

Special shout out to Megan Rodda, Shayla Crowe and the leadership team for organising the day, Trudie Crisp and the Cobram cooking group for making the cakes and slices, and Lynnette Phyland for manning the tea and coffee station all morning.
