Dundee gets behind cancer research

The small community of Dundee has got behind Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, raising more than $700 for cancer research and support.

The community raised almost $2 per local resident – if their efforts were repeated across Australia that would equate to around $44 million for this great cause.

The Biggest Morning Tea was held at Dundee Beach Markets today with freshly baked cakes and slices from local cooks.

Organiser Tracy Jones said it was a great effort from such a small community.

“Our community really got behind the cause to support cancer research and services,” she said.

“It was a mammoth effort and a real testament to what individuals can do when we get together.

“Virtually every one of us has been touched by cancer at some stage and Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea gives us all an opportunity to say thanks to those who have been there for us when one of our own family or friends has been affected by this terrible disease.”

Australia’s Biggest Morning tea is an annual event and the community of Dundee is already planning its event or next year.

“We’ve had great support from local businesses, including the Lodge of Dundee, Dundee Boat Hire and the Dundee Beach Tractor Pull,” Tracy said.
