Crazy hats come out for world’s biggest morning tea
MOSSMAN and Port Douglas residents will make every drop count over two weekends of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea fun and festivities.
The Mossman Port Douglas Volunteer Branch of Cancer Council Queensland will host two morning tea events over the Carnivale weekends to help raise funds in a fun and social setting.
Funds raised from Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea events are invested in cancer research, prevention and early detection programs and patient support services such as accommodation facilities like the Marilyn Mayo Lodge in Cairns. Cancer Council Queensland fundraising co-ordinator Berni McKean said each year around 21,000 Queenslanders are diagnosed with cancer and sadly, around 7000 of these will die from the disease.
‘‘I encourage all Queenslanders to put the kettle on this month and support the cause.’’ she said.
Join in the fun at the Sheraton Mirage on Sunday May 19 from 10am and receive a delicious high tea, entertainment and fashion to help celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Biggest Morning Tea.
Raffles and merchandise will be on sale to help boost the fundraising efforts. Tickets are available at the Sheraton Mirage or a Barbarella and Swan and are only $40 per person.
Mossman’s Mad Hatter’s Morning Tea - crazy hats are a must - held at the Mossman Bowls Club Hall on Saturday, May 25, doors open at 9am for only $3. Jennellda Harlow from the Mossman Port Douglas Volunteer Branch said
‘‘Instead of having a cup of tea alone, spend the morning amongst friends and help support the Cancer Council.’’
