Skytrans flew Lynsie James from the Far North Queensland Cancer Council Queensland to attend the annual Karumba Cancer Cuppa. This event is held as part of Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea and actually is the Biggest Morning Tea in Queensland!
The event was held at Karumba’s famous Sunset Tavern on 6th July and preparations were made by host Judy Walters and a handful of dedicated volunteers. Well over 300 people came through the door, but the numbers weren’t the only thing making it ‘big’, it was the atmosphere and the activity. There was a continuous flow of snap raffles, auctions, cent sale punters, announcements, morning tea and movement. Karumba is a small town with a big heart, the Karumba Cancer Cuppa raised an extraordinary $18,500!
The funds raised will help Cancer Council Queensland continue its work in cancer control including education, research and patient support. From this year in Far North Queensland, patient support will also include the running of a Cairns Accommodation and Support Lodge, a FREE home away from home for regional patients, from places like Karumba and Normanton, who travel to Cairns to access cancer treatment.
A big congratulations to the Karumba Cancer Cuppa, its organisers and guests, for contributing so generously!
“Thank you very much to Skytrans for making it possible for me to show the people of the Karumba Cancer Cuppa how much Cancer Council Queensland appreciates the large amount of effort they go to every year”.
