Tea for two worthy causes
Navy personnel, veterans, teachers, TS Anzac cadets and students from Tranby College and Comet Bay College gathered at HMAS Stirling on October 9 to help raise more than $3500 for breast and prostate cancer research.
The annual event, which took the form of a high tea, was hosted at the Sir James Stirling Mess on Garden Island to raise funds for the Prostate Foundation of Australia and Breast Cancer Care WA.
HMAS Stirling’s commanding officer Captain Brian Delamont said the turnout and support had been fantastic.
“We have had a great response from the local community and base personnel to this year’s event, with many people volunteering to be involved next year,” he said.
“We look forward to continuing our support for these worthy charities in the years to come.”
More than 150 people attended the event, which saw navy chefs and maritime logistics stewards volunteering on the day.
Guests were also able to enjoy a display of vintage cars along with a variety of spring market stalls set up by local businesses while the Royal Australian Navy Band and AB Jayden Schell provided the musical backdrop.
