Cancer survivor and Flamin' Dragons Port Macquarie member Janet Kesby will be the guest speaker at an Australia's Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser.
Fellow dragon boaters will also be special guests at the fundraiser hosted by the Uniting Church Port Macquarie on March 20.
Supporters will hear about the Aussie Dragonflies participation in the International Breast Cancer Paddler’s Commission Dragon Boat Festival in Italy, as well as the benefits of dragon boating for cancer survivors and the importance of community involvement.
Mrs Kesby said dragon boating was a very exciting team sport with a lot of camaraderie, friendship and support.
She said events such as the morning tea boosted cancer awareness and raised money for cancer research.
A group of eight church friends, who meet regularly for lunch, is organising the morning tea.
Roz Bond said the group of eight girls felt they wanted to do something about the future.
The morning tea fundraiser is the result.
People are encouraged to support the Devonshire morning tea at the Uniting Church in Sherwood Road from 10am on March 20 at a cost of $5 a person with tickets available at the door.
Donations will also be accepted on the day.
Mrs Bond said the organisers hoped to raise as much money as possible for the cancer research fund.
The fundraiser will include an opening song by The Four Grannies.
