Kambala raises over $30,000 for cancer research


On Friday 29 May, Kambala hosted a morning tea, which raised over $30,000 for cancer research. The event saw generations of mothers and daughters unite for a common cause, culminating in one of the largest fundraising efforts in the Sydney metro area for the Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea.

Spokesperson from the Cancer Council NSW, Ms Charlotte Raman, said “The amount that Kambala raised at their Biggest Morning Tea is absolutely incredible. It is fantastic to see the community get behind Kambala’s event and make it such an outstanding success.”

In the two weeks leading up to the event, a group of twelve mothers and staff members from Kambala formed a committee to organise what was the school’s first official Cancer Council morning tea. Mrs Maggie Bablis, member of the committee, said “Our vision in organising the event was to show our girls that we can make a big difference if we come together as a community.”

She added, “It was fantastic to see my daughter and her peers go out of their way to support the cause.”

Kambala mother and committee member, Mrs Samantha White, spoke about the positive impact that the Cancer Council has had on her life. As a cancer survivor, Mrs White said that she would like to express firsthand how initiatives like the morning tea can make a difference.

The venue, which was decorated with four hundred yellow and pink roses, had a display of prizes donated by the local community. Mrs Bablis and Mrs White commented on the generosity of the community. They said that event was a great success owing to the donations of local businesses and the help of volunteers.

Ms Debra Kelliher, Principal at Kambala said, “One of the four values underpinning Kambala’s strategic vision is humanity. I am incredibly proud that we, through initiatives like the Cancer Council morning tea, actualise our strategic direction.”
