It was a wonderful to sight to see families of the Bangladeshi community and representatives of the Eastern Sydney Islamic Welfare Services gathered at Mascot Public School this morning sharing a wonderful feast and and a cup of tea while raising funds for the Cancer Council NSW “Biggest Morning Tea” event.
For an impressive 14 years this warm and generous community has supported the Cancer Council by their annual fundraising events. Last year they raised morning an incredible $5,200 was collected.
I was joined by Michael Daley MP, Member for Maroubra, Matt Thistlethwaite MP, Federal Member for Kingsford Smith, Botany Bay Mayor and Mayoress, Cr Ben and Kristina Keneally, and Randwick Council's Cr Brendan Roberts.
Congratulations to Azad Alam for co-ordinating such a worthwhile event and to the wider Bangladeshi community who gathered in Mascot today for their generous fundraising and keen sense of community spirit.
