Come To Tea – it’s a big one at Bowra Folk Museum

Gail Stuart, Treasurer for the Bowraville Senior Citizens, gearing up for Bowra’s Biggest Morning Tea.


BOWRAVILLE’s Folk Museum is the venue for the local Biggest Morning Tea this Friday, May 21.

The Biggest Morning Tea, a fundraiser for cancer research, is being organised locally by the Bowraville Senior Citizens.

“Every year we use the Folk Museum,” Gail Stuart, Treasurer for the Senior Citizens told News Of The Area, and the venue attracts a loyal following.

Charging a $5 donation on the day means funds are raised by everyone attending, and then there’s all the raffle prizes and teas, coffees and cakes to buy.

“We have a donation from IGA in Bowraville, too,” said Gail.

“The Seniors bring in home made cakes and gifts to sell and maybe a bottle of wine to raffle.

“Everyone brings a plate so it’s very sociable sitting around and chatting,” said Gail.

“It’s mainly older people but we do get a few young ones, and everyone is welcome.”

“They’re also welcome to go through the museum while they’re here at no extra costs,” said Gail.

Cancer Council Australia is a not-for-profit national organisation which aims to promote cancer control policies and reduce the illness caused by cancer and advises many groups on cancer related issues.

It is totally dependent on community donations.

Fundraising includes May’s Biggest Morning Tea, August’s Daffodil Day and a new initiative Junk Free June where people are encouraged to eliminate junk food from their diet.

Last year, due to COVID, donations dropped by 79%.

So, in 2021, the 28th year of its commencement, Bowraville Senior Citizens are encouraging Bowraville residents to join them at the Folk Museum in an effort to make this a very special event.

“See you at our Biggest Morning Tea stall in the front of the Folk Museum on Friday 21 May between 10am and 11.30am – delicious Morning Tea – gluten free available – raffles, $5 donation.”
