Ourimbah students raising their cup to defeat cancer
By Kurt Sengul
Campus Central raised much needed funds for cancer research and prevention through their annual Biggest Morning Tea on Thursday.
Hosted on the lawn at the Ourimbah campus, students and staff came out in droves to have a cuppa and cake in support of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.
Campus Central’s Catherine Hazzard said the success of the morning tea is due to the willingness of students to show their support.
“Being a small campus, you get a real sense of community and the students are always eager to come out, have a great time and support a really good cause,” she said.
“Many of the beautiful cakes and treats were made [and] donated by our TVET hospitality students and we also had student volunteers assist us on the day.
“We had tables and picnic blankets spread out on the lawn and people were coming before and after class to enjoy some yummy treats.”
Located on the Ourimbah Campus, Catherine, Janene and the Campus Central team are committed to getting students involved in charitable fundraising.
“We’re active in all of the Cancer Council events, including Daffodil Day, Relay for Life, and of course, Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea,” Catherine said.
“We love hosting events where students can come along, have a blast, meet some new friends and support a worthy cause all at the same time.”
Community Relations Coordinator for Cancer Council NSW, Kim Leecroft, loves seeing students getting active in the fight against cancer.
“It’s awesome that the students have taken a real interest in Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea,” she said.
“Ourimbah students are really active across all our events and we love seeing the youth getting involved in our mission to defeat cancer.”
