Raising a cup for Cancer Council
6 June 2019
• Member for Joondalup, Emily Hamilton MLA, hosted a Biggest Morning Tea and raised $414.00
Emily Hamilton’s electorate office in Joondalup was humming with chat as community members gathered to raise funds for Cancer Council WA.
Raffle prizes were generously donated by local businesses—Aloha Surfhouse; Art’s Edge Photo & Frame; and Vital Beat Yoga.
Sandwiches were kindly donated by Boulevard Café and Tearooms in Woodvale. Staff and guests baked a variety of sweet and savoury morsels.
Guests included volunteers and representatives of community groups: Grandparents Rearing Grandchildren; Northern Suburbs Stroke Support Group; Joondalup Business Association, Community Newspapers, Solace Grief Support; and YouthCare. Member for Burns Beach, Mark Folkard MLA, was also in attendance.
Ms Hamilton said that as Cancer Council WA is a not-for-profit, non-government organisation, its survival and effectiveness is totally reliant on community donations.
Funds raised go towards practical and financial support to West Australians affected by this disease, as well as cancer education, research and prevention.
