Romsey Library Celebrates Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea

Tuesday 23 May 2017

Romsey Library will host Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea on Wednesday 31 May with a special visit from much-loved award winning author, John Marsden.

Last year’s Biggest Morning Tea at Romsey Library was a resounding success, with over $1000 raised for the Cancer Council and an enjoyable morning had by all. 

“Last year locals came in droves to hear actress Annie Phelan speak, eat yummy homemade food and help raise much needed funds for the Cancer Council,” said Sara Bryant, Romsey Library Manager.

“This year we are looking forward to welcoming back our regular crowd, plus we'd love to see some new faces as well. We promise a fun morning with special guest speaker John Marsden, a delicious homemade morning tea, a lucky door prize and raffle,” said Ms Bryant.

Thousands of organisations and individuals across Australia host a Biggest Morning Tea each year, with the aim of bringing communities together, and raising money to assist the Cancer Council with its research, prevention and support programs. Last year $11.9 million was raised, with a target of $13 million this year!*

John Marsden has been dubbed a pioneer of young adult fiction, and is the author of the internationally acclaimed Tomorrow, When the War Began and So Much to Tell You, among many other titles. John is also the founder of two alternative schools in the Macedon Ranges, Candlebark and Alice Miller.

The Romsey Library Biggest Morning Tea will be held on Wednesday 31 May from 11am-1pm, and entry is by gold coin donation.

Bookings are required, and can be made in person at Romsey Library or by phoning 5429 3086.
