SPEAKER HOSTS BIGGEST AFTERNOON TEA FOR CANCER COUNCIL

Speaker of the Legislative Assembly Vicki Dunne was pleased to host ACT Cancer Council President Ms Christine Brill at a Biggest Afternoon Tea at the Legislative Assembly yesterday afternoon.

“The official date for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is today the 26th of May, but we thought we’d get in a day early. It was terrific to have Christine Brill with us to talk about the importance of cancer fundraising,” Mrs Dunne said today.

“Money raised for the Cancer Council goes to cancer prevention and screening services as well as longer term research to diagnose and treat cancer.

“All over Canberra and right around the country, workplaces, community groups and support groups are hosting events in May and June and I’m pleased we could do our bit here at the Assembly,” Mrs Dunne concluded.
