Cuppa for cancer a huge success
THEY'VE done it again!
For the fifth year in a row Norma and Bruce Parker have pulled together hundreds of people from Urunga and beyond as well as just about every chair and marquee in the neighbourhood.
On Tuesday their back garden was overflowing with food, prizes, generosity and chatter as guests sat back and relaxed while having a cuppa for cancer.
Last year their Biggest Morning Tea was the biggest in the region, a record they were not so sure they could better this time but were certainly trying.
Preparations for the event began weeks ago with the Parkers enlisting the help of their many friends.
"We've had so much help," Mr Parker said.
"All my mates from golfing and the fire brigade have pitched in, people from the church, Norma's friends from the View Club and even linedancing ? it's been a huge effort."
Many guests come every year to either help or simply support.
Marie Telford and Betty Sharwood are the sandwichmaking team, while Joe and Jean Gardner are in control of beverages.
"This is without a doubt the best little town on the coast," trading table helper, cancer survivor and Urunga local Shirley Hile said.
"We stick together and ev- eryone is very generous."
