The Breast Morning Tea

In October we hosted our 7th Annual Fundraiser for the National Breast Cancer Foundation – The Breast Morning Tea.

More than 150 people sipped bubbles, feasted on a grazing table laden with scones, fruit, and sweet and savoury delights, competed in a silent auction filled with fantastic items donated by local businesses, before hearing an inspiring tale of survival from a local community member, Julie Hargreaves.

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia. Approximately 55 Australians are diagnosed every day. That equates to over 20,000 Australians diagnosed with breast cancer each year.

1 in 7 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and 1 in 700 men are diagnosed in their lifetime.

This year, over 3000 Australians passed away from breast cancer including 36 males and 3102 females. That’s 9 Australians a day dying from the disease.

The NBCF is committed to funding a broad spectrum of research to help understand risk factors, develop new ways to detect and treat breast cancer, improve quality of life for breast cancer patients, improve treatment outcomes and ultimately – save lives.

The mission: Zero Deaths from breast cancer by 2030.

This year we raised more than $13,000 ($13,460.16 – incredible! And our largest contribution yet) for the NBCF. As an organisation that receives no government funding, they rely solely on dedicated fundraisers and donors to allow them to continue their vital work.

The impact this money can make;

  • $200 – Could support researchers to uncover new drug targets for chemo-resistant breast cancer, to provide better treatment for those who need it most.
  • $500 – Could support researchers to develop new genomic tests that can accurately tell which patients would benefit from chemotherapy and which could avoid it.
  • $1,000 – Could help researchers identify parts of our DNA that are connected to higher risk of breast cancer but not yet fully understood, so people who carry these DNA defects can be tested.


Thank you so much to everyone that attended, donated, sponsored and helped us move towards the goal of zero deaths from Breast Cancer by 2030. Keep an eye on our social media channels for more photos and information.

We look forward to continuing our charity and community involvement and helping more local organisations.
