Sweet treats, music, raffles at Biggest Morning Tea event

IF tea and scones sound like a sweet way to start your Saturday head over to the Tannum Sands Progress Hall on May 10 for an Australia's Biggest Morning Tea event.

For $10 entry, people will receive tea, coffee, scones with jam and cream, live music and the chance to win great prizes, all while raising money for the Cancer Council.

Organiser Jessika Johnson said it was her first time organising a morning tea by herself and was hoping to raise $1000 to go towards cancer research.

"I think it's a good foundation and nearly everyone will benefit from it some day," she said.

"Whether directly of indirectly, sadly cancer seems to touch everyone at some point.

"It will something different for a Saturday morning, a bit of fun and a chance to catch up with friends and raise money."

Raffle prizes include scentsy gift vouchers and dinner at River Cafe and Bistro at Boyne Island.

The event will run from 10am to noon.

For more information or to donate to the event contact Miss Johnson on 0422 805 409.

People can also donate to the event at www.qld.cancercouncilfundraising.org.au/jessmorningtea.
