Tea time for Cleveland pink ladies to raise money for breast cancer research

Residents living in the Reflections Cleveland building put on a spread in aid of breast cancer awareness on Wednesday morning.

Tables were decorated with crochet doilies, floral tea sets and cake stands filled with petit fours.

The high tea raised money for the Breast Cancer Network Australia's Pink Lady Foundation.

The guest speaker was cancer survivor and former journalist Deb Eccleston who spoke about her journey to recovery.

Guests were treated to luxurious raffle prizes sponsored by local businesses.

Breast cancer remains the most common cancer among Australian women, excluding non-melanoma skin cancer.

Survival rates continue to improve with 89 out of every 100 women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer now surviving five or more years beyond diagnosis.
