Member for Burnett Stephen Bennett has once again ‘tea-ed’ up with the QCWA Burnett Division to host Bundy’s Biggest Morning Tea.
The seventh annual and highly-anticipated morning tea, to be held on Wednesday, May 19, will feature home baked goods, tea, coffee, guest speakers, entertainment and raffles.
Dozens of people are expected to attend the event and raise funds for Cancer Council Queensland.
Mr Bennett said it’s wonderful to be able to host Bundy’s Biggest Morning Tea in person this year following the virtual event last year.
“We have our Covid SAFE plan in place and are really looking forward to coming together once more to over a cuppa to make a difference in the fight against cancer,” he said.
“Cancer touches the lives of many, including thousands of people in our region, so please gather your friends to help us raise funds to ensure the Cancer Council can continue its vital work of providing support for those affected by cancer,” Mr Bennett said.
“I’m looking forward to joining the QCWA ladies and the community once more as we raise funds to help beat cancer.
“Each year we manage to raise around $1500, which is fantastic, but this year I’m calling on the community to dig deep and do even better in 2021.”
All funds raised through the morning tea help support more than 1820 people in the Wide Bay Burnett diagnosed with cancer each year.
Event organiser and Yandaran QCWA’s Bernice Maidment said she’s thrilled to be able to host the event once more.
“Simply by enjoying a cup of tea and something to eat with friends, you’re helping the Cancer Council fund lifesaving cancer research, prevention, advocacy and support programs,” she said.
“It’s such a worthy cause and we’re really looking forward to welcoming Bundaberg back through the CWA Hall doors.”
Entry is $5 per person and includes morning tea and a lucky door prize ticket. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
Doors open at 9.30am for a 10am start.
