“This is a lovely way to feed your mind and body in one go – and all for a very good cause,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor Councillor Denise Knight who will be at the event.
“Probably everyone in the Coffs community has been affected by cancer,” she said. “It may be you yourself, it may be a relative or it may be a friend. I doubt any of us has been untouched by this terrible disease. But every year research uncovers new drugs, new approaches and new treatments and it’s vitally important that life-saving research is supported until cancer becomes consigned to the history books.
“Please come along on May 24th and support this vital cause. Everyone is welcome.”
Now in its 25th year, Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is one of the Cancer Council’s leading fundraising events and the largest, most successful event of its kind in Australia.
Each year more than 11,000 Australians gather their friends, family or workmates, share a cuppa and tasty treats, and give support to those affected by cancer by raising funds for cancer research, prevention, advocacy and support services.
The event is also part of the national Library and Information Week celebrations. Library and Information Week aims to raise the profile of libraries and information service professionals in Australia. It gives libraries and information services the opportunity to showcase their resources, facilities, events, contacts and services through different programmes and community events.
