Every cent will count

RESIDENTS are being encouraged to dig deep this Sunday as a special Australia's Biggest Morning Tea event is being held to raise money for the Queensland Cancer Council.

Organiser Annie Leschke said a cent sale would be the feature attraction at the event.

"We'll have 200 items on display and as you enter you get tickets that you can put in the bucket in front of the item you want,” Mrs Leschke said.

"Once all of the tickets are entered we draw out a winning ticket from each bucket. So it's a bit random and you don't know what prize you'll get.”

Mrs Leschke is hoping the event is a success because a lot of work has gone into organising the sale items.

"We have children's bikes, Green Machines, camping chairs, wall mirrors - you name it, we've got it,” she said.

"I'd say there'll be over $1500 worth of prizes to be won.

"We'll have vouchers for Gary's Pizzas, they've been wonderful.”

Mrs Leschke notes she is motivated to make an impact on cancer because of the effect it has had on the lives of people around her.

"I'd encourage people to support it because we can't do enough for cancer, there's too much of it,” she said.

"We need to get out there and do as much as we can.

"I've had too many family members and friends die from it ... I'll keep on fighting it until the day I die.”

The cent sale is being held at the Senior Citizens Hall this Sunday from 11am.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $3 for children.
