Craft a Cure for Cancer

By Lorraine Dunbar

Craft a Cure for Cancer

The Craft a Cure for Cancer group began fundraising by holding Tea Cosy Competition, which was held annually at Warratina Lavender Farm, from 2014 until 2019. 

Our group continues to fundraise for the Cancer Council, but in a slightly different way; we now make and sell a variety of small items, such as toys and baby knits, and sell them at various outlets.

We continue to be committed to raising funds to help the work of the Cancer Council, in research, support, and education.
