Lunch to Battle Cancer

Friday, June 8th, 2018

Staff enjoying the foodIn the 11 years that South Gippsland Water has been supporting the Cancer Council’s ‘Biggest Morning Tea’ the event has morphed into a ‘Biggest Luncheon’ held at the Corporation’s office in Foster.

This year’s event was another resounding success with staff making, baking and donating to a delicious spread laid out in the Board room. South Gippsland Water’s event is organised by Janice Pell and the lunch enables staff to take some time out, catch-up over a shared meal and, importantly, join together to raise funds for a good cause.

This year’s lunch was another huge success with in excess of $750 raised through donations, a raffle and 31 staff members enjoying a range of delicious dishes prepared by their workmates. The raffle included prizes donated by Bromley’s on Main and other hamper goods contributed by South Gippsland Water staff.

With a delicious spread on the table, acknowledgement was given to staff who spent time out-of-work helping to prepare for the annual fund raising event.

Philippe du Plessis, Managing Director for South Gippsland Water said, “It’s always great to be part of something that is supported by so many businesses and community groups across the region.

“Importantly, it gives us all the opportunity to contribute to the Cancer Council’s vital work in cancer research, prevention programs, advocacy and support services for those affected by cancer.”

Thanks also goes to Janice Pell for donating her time and efforts to organise the luncheon.
