A recent high tea held by Freshwater Community Church, an Adventist church plant in the Northern Beaches (NSW), has raised close to $A600 to support breast cancer survivors.
The event was organised by the church’s Women’s Ministries department to raise funds for the Heart2Heart project, an initiative to make support pillows for breast cancer patients. Around 30 people attended the high tea, including eight from the local community.
“We had a wonderful time at our high tea fundraiser and are thankful for all who made it possible,” said church member Minerva Sindac-Lebmeier. “God is good and we are most grateful for His blessings.”
The money raised at the high tea will help the Heart2Heart team buy materials and sew the pillows.
“We have a commitment to donate 100 pillows in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” said Mrs Sindac-Lebmeier. “These much-needed funds will go towards this commitment. We are so grateful for everyone’s support.”
