“In June 2021, we got close to hosting a morning tea at Tamara's (Tom) friend’s house. Unfortunately due to one of the many lockdowns in Victoria the event was cancelled about 3 days before it was due.

Many of her family and friends kindly donated and also bought raffle tickets for some great prizes that were on offer (also provided by a network of caring friends).

Whilst our beautiful Tom passed away just over 4 months ago, her family were inspired to finish off the delayed event and contribute to Tom’s choice for donation of Bowel Cancer Australia. We held an evening at our friend’s house where about 35 of Tom’s family and friends got together for an evening to raise money in Tom’s honour.

All of us there plus the many that couldn’t make the night because of travel, other commitments and Covid, celebrated her, held a raffle, awarded some great prizes and raised $4,040 in her honour for Bowel Cancer Australia.

The evening ran with such a good spirit and vibe and everyone there was so happy to contribute to a cause that Tom supported. I know that she would be so proud that a night in her honour could raise in excess of $4,000.” ~ Darren (Tamara’s husband).
