Students, parents and teachers alike from Goldfields Baptist College shared a cuppa for a cause yesterday to raise money for the Cancer Council.
The school held a tea party for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, raising money at the door and auctioning off 26 prizes, with all proceeds going towards cancer research and patient care.
Up for bidding were kitchen items, electronics, day spa vouchers and glassware, all donated by nearby businesses.
Student leaders were on hand to collect donations at the door and help serve their guests with hot drinks and sweets.
President of the school’s parents and friends association Dena Omari said the event was a fun way to raise money for a good cause and get the students involved.
“Whatever we collect, that’s a little help for people who have been affected by cancer in their lives,” she said.
“The more money we can put into it, the more money we can put into technology and doctors for people living with cancer.”
Ms Omari said the school was very thankful to the businesses that had donated items for auction.
“We knocked on doors of businesses and the generosity of Kalgoorlie, it just blew our minds,” she said.
“People were big smiles and just very generous.”
