An event held to support the Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea attracted 250 people and 57 volunteers to the Peninsula Community Centre on Thursday, May 23.
More than $7500 is expected to be raised from the day, which included Sandra’s Cupcake Challenge with three age categories for hand-made or packet-based cakes.
The annual challenge is held in honour of volunteer Ms Sandra McArtney, who had a passion for baking and died of cancer in October 2014.
This year, Ms Donna Stratford from Lisarow won both the adult homemade cake and the people’s choice category.
Ms Kimberley Dunshea from Umina won the adult packet mix category.
Coast Community Connections has supported the Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea for six years now.
Chief executive Mr Bruce Davis said: “We were absolutely thrilled with the support received from the local community for this years’ event.
“We had an exceptionally strong turnout, the quality of cupcakes entered in Sandra’s Cupcake Challenge was nothing short of impressive and having Mark Ferguson and Mel McLaughlin from Seven News in attendance on the day added even more excitement.”
