BINGO bakes up a storm for Cancer Council NSW

Last week, BINGO also held several fundraising morning teas and baking competitions across our sites, that helped to raise over $1,000. Well done to all our teams who participated.

BINGO was honoured to be joined by Ainslie Tweedie Relationship Specialist from the Cancer Council NSW at our Auburn Head Office Biggest Morning Tea event. 

Ainslie shared the importance of campaigns like Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea and fundraising supporters such as BINGO in the fight for a cancer-free future.

“It was lovely to see the BINGO team share some time to together for their Biggest Morning Tea. It gives us all an opportunity to connect while raising funds for the important work Cancer Council does.  1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, so it is vital for us to continue reducing the impact of cancer across NSW. Thank you to the BINGO team for your ongoing support. The funds you raise will make a difference to people affected by cancer”.
    
BINGO have been a proud supporter of the Caner Council NSW for over six years and during that time we have raised funds and supported the charity through various initiatives.

BINGO began supporting the Cancer Council NSW, after Managing Director and CEO, Daniel Tartak experienced the impacts of cancer in his own family.

“A cancer diagnosis of any type rocks your whole family unit to the core. In 2014, our family was sent into a state of turmoil as two of my beautiful Aunties, Rose and Mary, were diagnosed with cancer. Pillars of strength, they had lived amazing lives and truly were the glue that held our family together. We were all devastated when they passed away within a month of each other, at just 57 years old. Experiencing this pain and seeing how it impacted my mother is what has inspired me to make a difference and support others in a similar situation.”

Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is a community event that brings people together in support for those impacted by cancer. Funds raised during the campaign go towards helping vital research, prevent and support services for cancer patients and their families. 

According to the Cancer Council NSW, $72 can help protect children from potentially harmful sun exposure through the SunSmart school program, $250 can help find a clinical trial of new immunotherapies for patients with chemo resistant cancers and $2,500 helps to fund a webinar to educate and support people affected by cancer.

The Cancer Council NSW conducts and funds world-class research and believes in a cancer free future. The Council provides support for people with cancer, their carers, family and friends, throughout their cancer journey.
