Stalwarts unite again for Biggest Morning Tea
scones, crepes and warm drinks.
Ms Woods said everyone who attended the morning tea was passionate about the cause.
“Most people here have been touched by cancer in some way – whether through a loved one or through personal experience,” she said.
“We have cancer survivors here who come along every year and it’s a really nice cause where we can get together on a social level with our guests and raise money at the same time.”
Despite financial difficulties caused from Cyclone Debbie, the same people who support the annual event year after year came with conviction.
“A lot of people here aren’t in a stable financial situation themselves, but they are the stalwarts that come every year to support a great fundraiser.”
Australia’s official Biggest Morning Tea event is held on May 25, however fundraising events can be held between May and June.
Money raised goes to Cancer Council.
