Biggest Morning Tea just days away

ONE of the the biggest days for the Cancer Council is fast approaching in Dalby.

Australia's Biggest Morning Tea will be held at Jimbour House on Sunday, May 20, and the group has prepared a big day of fun and food.

Morning tea will be just one aspect of the event, which is packed full of entertainment including live music and a barbecue lunch.

Organiser Wal Burton said it was an event the whole family could enjoy.

"We are aiming to help people with cancer and financing treatment,” Mr Burton said.

"All the money we raise will go to Cancer Council Queensland and the money will be evenly distributed there.”

Once again there will be a mad hatter's challenge and this year there is an Australian theme.

A fashion parade will be provided for patrons.

Raffles and a 'lucky cuppa' draw will also be raising money for the charity.

The event will begin at 10am and entry to the grounds is free.

Morning tea will cost $10 for adults and $5 for primary school children.

The morning tea will finish at 11.30am, however entertainment will continue into the afternoon.

The barbecue lunch will be put on by the Lions Club of Dalby.

Money raised from the event will be focused on projects finding cures for cancer, projects to prevent the disease, as well as patient care.
