JUST like anything else, an Australia's Biggest Morning Tea's life starts out small.

But eventually, like the Gladstone Cancer Council branch's event, it will brew to something bigger and better.

Smiles and laughs resonated among the 80 people who flocked to the Gladstone Ports Corporation Social Club for the annual morning tea on Thursday.

"A lot of work for a small committee, but it's worth it," Cancer Council Gladstone member Kay Lee said.

Cancer Council fundraising co-ordinator Jess O'Neill said: "There's always a lot of love in the room and the people who come along are looking for a good time, but they are also supporting the Cancer Council."
