Tea time at Lowes raises almost $10 000

By Cobram Courier

Lowes petrol station hosted its ninth annual Biggest Morning Tea last week, with almost $10000 raised for Cancer Council Australia.

Tuesday’s morning tea raised $4738, which was matched by Lowes Petroleum.

The event at the Murray Valley Hwy business was not just restricted to morning tea, with volunteers, including organiser Rachel McKay, promoting the cause from 9.30am to 5pm.

There was a wide variety of delicious goodies on offer, including colourful cupcakes and scrumptious slices, while Jan Willis cooked a mountain of sausage rolls from 25kg of mince meat.

There were more than 50 prizes raffled off during the day, with prizes including children’s toys, kitchen hampers and Women’s Weekly magazines, up for grabs.

Attendees enjoyed live music from Darrell Brett, who contacted Mrs McKay the night before, through a friend, to ask if he would be able to play some tunes at the event.

Last year, the event raised a similar figure across the morning tea and Lowes Petroleum’s contributions.
