Cancer Council Redlands branch launches fundraising recipe book

WITH many of their usual fundraising events put on hold due to COVID-19, members of the Cancer Council Queensland Redlands branch have been hard at work compiling a recipe book to raise money for their cause.

Launched at a the Lions Hall in Cleveland this month, the book contains more than 100 pages of recipes donated by members of the Redlands community, including cancer survivors.

It will contribute to fundraising efforts for cancer research, new treatments, prevention programs and patient support services.

Branch secretary Pam Tranter said the book had been a community effort, with designers and contributors chipping in and many expenses donated by local businesses and groups.

"We've kept it all Redlands," Ms Tranter said.

"We are thrilled that the cost of the printing has been donated by various Redlands organisations, businesses and personal donations.

"Because we've covered the cost of printing with donations, we keep the whole cost of the book."
