19th Annual Biggest Morning Tea Event
Written on the 19 May 2017
On Thursday 18 May, Community Living Australia hosted their 19th annual Biggest Morning Tea event at 'The Cottage' in Murray Bridge, a popular Day Options service for local people with disability.
Australia's Biggest Morning Tea events take place right across Australia, supporting the Cancer Council to fund cancer research, prevention and support programs and to raise awareness and understanding in the community. The impact of cancer is extremely prevalent in society, with almost everyone knowing someone affected by cancer. Today more than 1.1 million Australians are either living with cancer or have survived a diagnosis.
This year's event was another great success, with pleasant weather, and exceptional catering provided by local clients of Community Living Australia.
"Our clients, both here and across all our regions, play a significant role and contribute to our communities," said Molly Baulch, Regional Manager for the Murraylands.
"Their contribution comes in many forms, and recognising cancer prevention and research as a significant community issue that we need to support is something that our clients hold dear. I am proud of the commitment and support our clients and Community Living Australia have for this important community issue," Molly added.
Community Living Australia's work is based on a partnership model.
"The concept of working together for a common aim is what underpins our work at Community Living Australia, and how we partner with our clients and other stakeholders is what sets us apart," said Mark Kulinski, Chief Executive of Community Living Australia.
"Working with our clients and families to understand what they want to achieve in life and working as a team to achieve those goals is fundamentally what we do, and our work could not be as impactful or sustainable without our partnerships with people, groups and businesses in our community," Mark added.
On behalf of our organisation we would like to extend our thanks to our local partners and the members of the Murray Bridge community who attended this year's Biggest Morning Tea, in addition to those who were unable to attend, but show their support for both the Cancer Council and Community Living Australia in other ways. We also give a special thanks to all our wonderful clients and staff at The Cottage for their exceptional organisation of the event, and their much needed support and continued dedication to the fight to prevent, and eventually cure, cancer.
