Brewing up for big annual cancer charity event

FOR 20 years Warwickites have banded together in support of the Cancer Council Warwick Branch's Biggest Morning Tea.

The branch events co-ordinator Carol Cooke said there would be a sausage sizzle, pikelets, scones and endless tea and coffee on offer.

All for a $5 admission fee that would go towards Cancer Council Queensland and their plight to find a cure.

Mrs Cooke said the Warwick and District Country Music Club would be providing the morning's entertainment.

"It will be held at the Senior Citizens Centre on May 23," she said.

"Starting at 9.30am."

Those attending the event will also be able to show their support by purchasing coffee mugs for $10 and for the first time tea towels for $6.

As well as raffles and a lucky door prize.

Mrs Cooke said it was difficult to put an estimate on how much they hoped to raise.

"It would be great for everyone to come and support the cancer council," she said.

"The aim is to raise as much money as possible."

A Biggest Morning Tea will also take place at the APN Print Site on Kenilworth St on May 21.

Anyone in that area is invited to attend the sausage sizzle, which starts at 9.30am.
