ORGANISERS of a recent fundraiser in Leeton have been left amazed at the support and generosity of the community.
Leeton resident Fay Ryan held a sold out afternoon tea in aid of the Charlie Teo Foundation recently, raising $6000 in the process.
That money will now be forwarded to the foundation and Mrs Ryan hopes it will help with vital research.
Attended by many community members at the Leeton Visitor Information Centre, the idea was to raise as much money for the cause as possible.
"It was overwhelming to see all who attended our afternoon and also all who donated online," Mrs Ryan said.
"Everyone had a lovely afternoon chatting and listening to the wonderful voice of Leeton's own tenor John Martin.
"This support has made it possible to send $6000 to the Charlie Teo Foundation to fund brain cancer research."
The foundation was launched by well-known Professor Charlie Teo in March last year in a bid to help people affected by brain cancer.
It is "dedicated to funding brain cancer research with a low-cost model that's redefining how charities operate".
