The Biggest Morning Tea at the Library

Every year in May, the war against cancer is waged using cups of tea, coffee, cake and scones! Some skirmishes have been won, research and support services are being funded, but the war is not over yet.

This year marks 25 years for the Cancer Council’s, Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, a celebratory event which has been bringing people together in support of those with cancer. Sadly we all know someone that has, has had or will have cancer.

The Cancer Council Australia puts the funds you donate to work, funding research to the tune of $60 million across Australia. They provide support services by answering over 47,000 calls, developing programs to encourage healthier lifestyles and, advocacy to change laws and policies to reduce cancer risks and improve cancer care.

 “Every cup of tea is one more step in the right direction to fight cancer, and events like the Biggest Morning Tea at Lithgow Library help to fund support and care, ” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Stephen Lesslie.

Join the staff of Lithgow Library on Thursday 24 May 2018, from 10.00am to 12 noon to show your support for this amazing event. There will be a café serving tea, coffee, cakes and savoury options. A gold coin donation is all that is needed to take part and help us fight this war!
