Tea in the garden for a good cause

VIBRANT flowers and tantalising treats were just part of the Chinchilla Cancer Council's Biggest Morning Tea and Garden Day.

The event, held on Monday at the delightful garden of David and Raylene Harris, was all about raising money for cancer research.

Chinchilla Cancer Council chairperson Lorna Gadsby said the group had held the event in Fuller Place for years but decided it needed a change of location, and was thrilled with the result.

"(It's) fantastic, we've sold over 140 tickets so far,” Mrs Gadsby said.

Attendees were treated to a morning tea, lunch, guest speaker, a lucky door prize, and, of course, admission to the Harris' beautiful garden.

"The aim is for people to come and mingle, walk the gardens, talk with people,” Mrs Harris said.

The Biggest Morning Tea will be held again in Fuller Place in May.
