Echuca-Moama held one of the largest Biggest Morning Tea events in Victoria yesterday.
The event was held at Radcliffe’s Restaurant and hosted a crowd of about 300 people.
This was the first time Robyn Galvin, Libby Jacobs, Melissa Sellars and Andrea Velt had organised the event and were pleased when everything came together.
‘‘Tickets were sold out a week before the event was held,’’ Ms Sellars said.
She said the group received many donations from local businesses and the group was honoured by the support they received.
The funds raised are being donated to the oncology ward at Echuca Regional Health and the Cancer Council.
Tess Jacobs, along with her granddaughter Ruby, were the MC’s of the event.
The group arranged Ms Susan Eacott to speak about her experiences with cancer.
Ms Sellars said people had commented on the fantastic atmosphere and how fabulous the room looked.
She thought people appreciated how not much had changed from last year’s Biggest Morning Tea.
