Canterbury High Tea Fundraiser: Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Pink Lady Event Wrap

This day last week, we hosted our very successful SOLD OUT Canterbury High Tea Fundraiser at our College’s Trade Training Centre Restaurant for Breast Cancer Awareness Month – an official ‘Pink Lady Event’ registered with the Breast Cancer Network Australia organisation.

A big ‘thank you’ to our 65 parents, community members, staffers and special guests who attended, and to our Year 11 Hospitality students who catered, with a wide range of delicious cakes and slices, scones with jam and cream, savouries, sandwiches and fruits, as well as summer mocktails, tea and coffee.

Our guest speaker was Canterbury’s very own Director of Student Futures Ms Bre Ramsay-Orr – herself a cancer survivor – who detailed her personal experiences with her family’s ongoing hereditary battle with breast cancer, surgery, recovery, a lifetime of medication, and how the love of her three children keeps her positive.

It was certainly a very powerful presentation and really brought home why everyone was attending the morning tea fundraiser which raised around $1,300.

Canterbury hosted one of these fundraisers with their Hospitality students a few years ago, and likewise it was very successful, so this may well become an annual event.

Breast Cancer Network Australia is an extremely worthwhile organisation and cause, which offers support to the 57 Australians diagnosed with breast cancer every single day!
