People travel from all over for Rydal’s Biggest Morning Tea | Photos

The sun shined bright on Rydal as they held their third annual Biggest Morning Tea on Wednesday, May 16 at Greg Featherstone Park. 

With 40 people in attendance, members enjoyed sweet and savoury foods, while drinking multiple cups of tea. 

Organiser Lorraine Stack said, despite numbers being down on previous years, she was still extremely proud of the people who turned up. 

After raising $850 for the NSW Cancer Council in their first year and nearly $1000 in the second, Ms Stack said they were hoping to continue building on this success. 

“We’re very lucky, these are a good lot of people,” she said. 

Friends turned out for the event from all over, including Blaxland, Wallerawang, Wentworth Falls, Glossodia and Penrith. 

“It’s such a good event, you can catch up with friends and celebrate a good cause,” Christina Lewis said. 

As well as donations straight to the the Cancer Council, Ms Stack held a raffle and lucky door prize with proceeds made from that going straight to the Cancer Council as well.

Lithgow City Councillor Maree Statham turned out with her mother for the event, showing their support.

“It’s a beautiful day to show support for such a worthy cause,” she said. 

Ms Stack said she enjoyed putting this event on every year because we all knew someone who was affected by cancer and doing these small things could help. 

Cancer can affect anyone, so raising some money is the least I can do,

The owners of the Wallerawang Chinese restaurant could not attend the event, but instead donated spring rolls and prawn crackers to the morning tea.
