ONE in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85.

We are all touched by cancer's effect at some point in our lives, so senior students at St Ursula's College, Kate Chappell and Johanna Scully, have raised their tea cups for the Cancer Council by hosting two events under the Biggest Morning Tea fundraising promotion last week.

The girls had an initial fundraising goal of $500, but the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, held at St Ursula's College last Monday, raised $950 from the school.

Kate and Johanna had a great start to their fundraising week at another Biggest Morning Tea event that raised another $960.

Raffles were made possible by the generous donations from Something Different, Karma Kandles, Coles, Nextra, Chemmart, Marty Kendall Photography and Kmart.

Jennifer Chappell also contributed by conducting a "be brave and shave" at their event, rolling in the donations from sponsors.

Altogether the girls have raised more than $3000 for the Cancer Council.

The girls thanked their generous sponsors and everyone who donated.
