Scone and District Cancer Support Group keeping the Biggest Morning Tea tradition alive in 2019

IT'S that time of year again - Scone's Uniting Church Hall will soon be full of tasty treats and the smiling faces of Scone and District Cancer Support Group members in their bright yellow aprons.

This year marks the 26th year of Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, which helps raise vital funds for the Cancer Council, and the local group have worked hard to keep the tradition alive in Scone.

They will be hosting a Big Morning Tea on Thursday, May 23 at St Andrews Uniting Church Hall, Kingdon Street, Scone.

There will be a craft table, raffles and a guessing competition as well as an array of home-baked goods to choose from and enjoy over coffee or tea.

And, your cuppa can make a big difference! Last year the event raised almost $4500 in three hours - money that helps provide updated equipment and make the lives of local people affected by cancer easier.

Scone and District Cancer Support Group's Cath Coady says the day is always well supported by the generous local community.

"It's one of our biggest fundraising events of the year," she said.

"We then prepare for our Damper and Soup day in June and Daffodil Day in August."

It will be a big few months for the support group, who are gearing up to celebrate their 25th anniversary in February 2020.

Doors will open at the Uniting Church Hall for next Thursday's (May 23) Biggest Morning Tea at 9.15am so don't forget to pop in for a cuppa and support a fantastic cause.
