Australia's Biggest Morning Tea 2018


CWH celebrating Australia’s biggest morning tea with a staff bake off. It was a great opportunity for the team at CWH to stop and connect with each other, have a cuppa and eat some cake (because who doesn’t eat cake) and raise money for a very good cause. We’ve all been touched by cancer, in some way shape or form, and this was a great opportunity to raise funds to support individuals and families touched by cancer. It was also a great chance for our very talented staff to demonstrate their baking skills...and the proof was in the pudding!
