On Sunday 25th May 2014, I was thrilled to attend Hayley Bell’s 7th birthday party. What was unique about Hayley’s 7th birthday was that she wanted to host an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea to raise money for the Cancer Council; as mum Donna Bell and big brother Ryan had led by example with their own fundraising efforts and marathons. Hayley raised $900 towards the fight against cancer.
With special thanks and deep appreciation to Peter Dable of The Cheesecake Shop who supplied cupcakes & cake pops, Kylie Riley of Sei Pak Packaging Pty Ltd in Smithfield for the castle turrets, Jade Child and Karyne & Emma Opdam for face painting, Maddie Tourgelis - Hair stylist, proud grandmother Mary Bell whose painting collected $85 in raffle money, proud grandfather and photographer Philip Bell, Michelle Schwenke who assisted with preparations for the day & serving, Amanda Smeekens for supplying scones & sandwiches, Kerri & Daniel Suhr who assisted in cleaning up and fabulous dad Michael Bell for his all-round help.
Thank you to all the friends and family who supported and encouraged Hayley. Most of all I extend the NSW Parliament’s congratulations to Hayley for her heart of gold in raising $900 for the Cancer Council.
