QCWA bakes up a storm for cancer

HOMELY smells of baked scones and biscuits will waft through Warwick tomorrow for the Cancer Council's Biggest Morning Tea.

Cuppas and cakes will be consumed at QCWA and the Senior Citizens Centre tomorrow, to raise money for cancer research.

Queensland Country Womens Association Condamine Valley Warwick branch president Dorothy Lee said there would be a range of home-baked goods.

“The members will be providing morning tea – there will be lots of things like scones, biscuits and slices,” she said.

“The savoury scones are always popular and I normally try and make pikelets.”

At its home on 76 Grafton St, the QCWA branch will also have on display some local artwork.

“We've always had a display of something and it used to be connected with the morning teas,” Mrs Lee said.

“Previously we've had tea cosies, tea towels and tea pots, but this year someone suggested we do artworks.”

The artworks – namely paintings – have been done by local QCWA members and will just be for display.

Tomorrow marks the club's 12th Biggest Morning Tea and the women have a fundraising goal in mind.

“We usually raise about $300 so we'll be looking to do that again this year,” Mrs Lee said.

“Raising money for cancer research is an important thing for us.

"There are members who have family connections that have been affected by cancer.”

QCWA Condamine Valley Warwick branch will host their morning tea from 9.30am-12pm tomorrow.

A gold coin donation is asked upon entry.

Across at Albert St, the Warwick branch of the Cancer Council Queensland will also host a morning tea tomorrow at the Senior Citizens Centre.

A gold coin donation upon entry is asked.

Throughout the morning will be a number of raffles, lucky door prizes, sausage sizzle and music from the Hillbillies and Fillies.
