Chance to support Cancer Council Qld at morning tea

KAY Wilson can recall 27 years of Cancer Council Queensland Biggest Morning Teas in Warwick.

She and husband Andy went to their first morning tea in 1992 and were volunteers from then on.

Andy died in 2013 but the show goes on with a lot of work by a hard-working committee.

Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, Warwick style, will be Thursday at 9.30am for 10am at the Senior Citizens Centre in Albert St.

Cost is $5 which includes morning tea and a sausage sizzle.

Mrs Wilson said the money would go to help with research into cancer treatment and to support transport and accommodation costs of people receiving treatment for cancer.

"A number of people from Warwick have received a fair bit of help when they or a family member had cancer,” she said.

The fundraising tomorrow will also include a raffle and the sale of Cancer Council Queensland tea cups, aprons and tea towels.

All money will go to the state office which in turn splits the money up between research, transport and accommodation.

While many patients travelled to Brisbane down the year for treatment, more treatment is now available at St Andrew's Hospital in Toowoomba where patients can receive radium and chemotherapy.

Organisers hope to raise more than $1000 on Thursday morning.
