2015 Cup Cake Morning Tea
Proving beyond doubt that they ARE the ‘fresh food people’, Safeway, Sebastopol were again the sponsor of our second annual Cup Cake Morning Tea day held on Wednesday, September 9. Bakery staff worked through the nite to bake and ice beautiful cup cakes in our charity colours. The day raised close to $5,000 and we hope to make the day bigger and more successful next year. We are grateful to Des Carter, Manager of Safeway Sebastopol and his staff for their amazing and friendly support. We are delighted and grateful for the assistance of SES volunteers led by Heather Turner, who came together again this year to deliver the cupcakes around the Ballarat area. Thank you to the businesses, schools, organisations and the community who purchased cup cakes and again, the feedback about how delicious and fresh the cup cakes were reaffirms Safeway, as the fresh food people!
Victoria Police in Ballarat again showed leadership through Supt Andrew Allen APM to be among the first to place orders for cup cakes and host a special morning tea. So too major health services Ballarat Health Services, St John of God, UFS and Tristar medical services purchased cup cakes for the second year. McCains hosted a special morning tea with staff and used the opportunity to have Professor Caroline Taylor AM speak. In addition, McCains staff collected additional donations. We were delighted that VicRoads hosted their own morning tea to raise funds for Children of Phoenix. St Patricks College and Loreto College also purchased cupcakes and we hope that next year more schools will get involved in this wonderful and positive event that helps to raise funds that go directly to assist those whose educational pathways have been compromised or lost through child sexual abuse.
