Residents joined the Butler Walking Group at the Brighton Community Garden on May 27 for their Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser.

Garden committee chairwoman Catherine Keet said about 20 people went on a walk before returning for the tea, and they raised $136.55 through gold coin donations.

‘It was a really nice way of tying a number of things together, the walking group and the Cancer Council cause,’ she said.

‘We aim to the put ‘community’ into the Brighton Community Garden by making this space open and accessible to the wider community for their enjoyment in the beautiful open space that it is.’

Satterley Property Group community development coordinator Amy Blundell said it was great to see residents take advantage of the sunny morning and show their support by raising money to help those affected by cancer.

The community garden will hold a verge planting and fruit tree sale tomorrow, June 5, to mark World Environment Day.

The two-hour event at 7 Amersham Crescent will start at 2pm, with free soup for volunteer planters.
