The annual Biggest Morning Tea will be held next week and the Taking Off Pounds In Company (TOPIC) group has been working hard to prepare for the event.
More than 250 people are expected to attend the event held at Invermay Hall and hosted by TOPIC.
TOPIC is made up of close to 30 women above the age of 50 to promote womens’ health.
“It is supposedly a weight-loss group but essentially extends to all womens’ health,” co-ordinator Sue Martin said.
TOPIC’s Biggest Morning Tea event was first held 10 years ago, after Ms Martin’s sister died from breast cancer.
The event has grown in that time, with last year’s event raising more than $5000, a portion of which was donated to the wellness centre at the Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre.
“I think anything to do with funding for cancer encourages people to come along. We will raffle a quilt and other items for the morning,” Ms Martin said.
The event will begin at 9.30am on Tuesday, May 20.
