RESIDENTS at Ingenia Gardens Ocean Grove cracked open the biscuit tin and raised their teacups today and raised $232 for Cancer Council’s 25th Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.

Local seniors joined residents and staff for a tea-rific morning, filled with delicious food, great company and a host of fundraising activities for the cause.

Ingenia Gardens Ocean Grove resident 96-year-old Joyce Rollinson said the cause was close to her heart.

“It’s important that communities continue to come together and raise awareness and fundraise, my daughter-in-law had cancer for three years before we lost her and contributing any way we can is the least we can do for her,” she said.

Ingenia Gardens Ocean Grove Village manager Martin Higgins said residents would look forward to this event every year.

“Coming together with friends over a cuppa is the perfect way to raise awareness and funds for The Cancer Council,” he said.

“Sadly, we all know someone who has been affected by this terrible disease and we are determined to help the Cancer Council find a cure, any way that we can.

“It’s always such a lovely morning, enjoying delicious treats and being able to help a cause so close to our hearts.

“The residents here love to welcome locals along – a community coming together for charity is heart-warming.”
