Apollo Bay Community Biggest Morning Tea

Apollo Bay Community Biggest Morning Tea

Apollo Bay Community Biggest Morning Tea


In 2021 we managed to squeeze our community Biggest Morning Tea in before lockdown restrictions start and raised over $650 in the process.

Thank you so much to all who baked, donated, organised, set-up, packed up and came along to support this important cause.

We will be doing it again in May 2022 at the Apollo Bay RSL on Pengilley Ave.


More information to come in April 2022, but the set-up is the same: bring a plate, bring a donation and bring a friend.
