Australia Day – community event honoured

LOCAL participation in the national Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea has been recognised as the Derwent Valley’s Community Event of the Year. The event is organised annually by New Norfolk’s Can-Hope Cancer Support Group and held at the RSL Clubrooms.

In 2011 the group raised $4500 for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, which supports cancer research. Each year since 1998, the Can-Hope volunteers work tirelessly to prepare food for the morning tea. About 230 people attended last year, and a further 100 takeaway morning teas were supplied.

Since its inception the group has raised more than $20,000 for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, but it has also supported the ABC Giving Tree, Daffodil Day, Relay for Life, the Mini-Field for Women and the Royal Hobart Hospital.

Congratulations to all the members of the Can-Hope Support Group for their good work which has led to this recognition on Australia Day 2012.
