Camaraderie Helps Fight Cancer

Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea has become a set fixture on AE Smith’s gastronomic calendar for years thanks to the efforts of cancer survivor Diane Wise

However, since being recently re-diagnosed with cancer and taking leave for treatment, Diane’s annual fundraising efforts have been graciously accepted by colleague and Corporate Finance Manager, Tira Jones.

Each May, the Cancer Council encourages workplaces to stage a fundraiser over morning tea. The “Biggest Morning Tea” events around the country have helped raise over $110 million toward cancer research, prevention and support services.

“This year, our morning tea event in Melbourne and Sydney saw lots of donations – big and small – which was fantastic,” says Tira.

“But it wasn’t just a way to raise money. This year, it was also about showing support and helping one of our colleagues.

“Diane. Get well soon,” said Tira.
