Australia's Biggest Morning Tea

Last Friday, I and many of my Charlestown constituents got together for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea to raise more than $500 for the Cancer Council. We were lucky to be joined by guest speaker Dr Soozy Smith, chief executive officer of the Australia and New Zealand Breast Cancer Trials Group, which is one of the most successful, respected and longest-established breast cancer research groups in the world. For more than 35 years, this organisation has conducted the highest-quality clinical trials and research into the treatment, prevention and cure of breast cancer with a mission to eradicate all suffering from the disease. Dr Smith—or "Soozy" as she prefers to be known—provided insight into and compelling information about her research. It is great to know that we have such intelligent and capable people working hard literally to save lives. I thank everyone who made donations and attended. I extend special thanks to Windale Men's Shed for its strong presence.
