Allendale East Area School has raised over $1800 for Cancer Council SA by hosting its inaugural Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea at the Port MacDonnell Golf Club last month.
Throughout the morning, there were potted daffodils for sale, raffles and lucky squares on offer to raise funds for the initiative.
Allendale East Area School’s Sarah Stratford said staff and the student leadership team enjoyed the opportunity to serve the community and ensure they had a wonderful time, whilst working towards raising valuable funds for the Cancer Council.
“We decided it was a worthwhile event to hold not just for the attendee’s involvement but also to get our leadership team out into the community and interacting,” she said.
“We had a turnout of over 50 people attend the morning day which was brilliant because with COVID-19 we have not been able to get out into the local community for quite some time.
“This Biggest Morning Tea was the first to be held in the Port MacDonnell community for quite some time and it was a rewarding event for staff, students and leadership to be a part of.
“The successful event was only possible through time and effort invested by all those who contributed.
“It encouraged our young people and staff to go out into the community, to foster positive relationships, highlight our talents and show our willingness to give back to our community.
“There were many people that helped contribute to the event and we would sincerely like to thank all of them for their contributions and donations of baked goods, groceries, slices, pastries and raffle prizes.”
