The BDT has celebrated its biggest “Biggest Morning Tea” yet raising around $700 towards the Cancer Council. A range of sweet and savoury treats were quickly snatched up by employees and the public alike yesterday morning in return for a donation.

Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is on the horizon, and Anne-Marie Cain is preparing a feast fit for the occasion.

Ms Cain is preparing 16 dozen cakes for a giant morning tea at the Workingmen’s Club on Saturday morning.

Along with a variety of cakes there will also be coffee, a door prize and lots of raffles thanks to generous donations from locals and businesses.

Those who are just after a quick morning coffee are also encouraged to drop in, as coffee will be available in takeaway cups.

The morning tea, which will be held from 10am-11.30am, will be one of thousands taking place across the country in the coming weeks.

A Biggest Morning Tea will also be held at Globe Home Timber and Hardware to raise money for the Cancer Council.  

“It’s touched us all at Globe and this year we’re joining in,” Corporate Service Manager Lee James said.

“We’ll have fabulous temptations to eat as well as hot drinks that can be devoured in return for a donation.  

“We don’t necessarily have a target but will be grateful for anyone who joins us and gives to the great cause - working a fundraiser into the working day is the best we can do to help and we’re looking forward to it.”

The Broken Hill City Library is also having a morning tea on Wednesday. Everyone is invited to come along and make their cuppa count in the fight against cancer. 

Although the Biggest Morning Tea is officially held on May 28, organisers encourage participants to hold their own event at any time during May or June.

The funds raised from Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea allow the Cancer Council to undertake work in cancer research, prevention and support services.

In 2014, research grants through Cancer Councils totalled more than $65 million.

Last year, the Cancer Council raised over $11.9 million to help beat cancer, and this year it hopes to raise $13 million.
