TAFE promotions officer Leanne de Toerkenczy said people could vote for their favourites by placing donations into the cups.

“We even have a teacup from the 18th century one of the ladies had – I tell you, if a teacup could tell a story,” Ms de Toerkenczy said.

“Whoever drank out of that teacup 100 years ago, I wonder what they were talking about?”

All proceeds from the morning will be donated to Cancer Council Queensland.

“Everyone has been touched by cancer and we’ve all had personal journeys too, so it’s just a great way to support the cause and also network with others,” Ms de Toerkenczy said.

“So come along with your families and friends and join us for a cuppa to help this great cause.”

When: Tomorrow, 10am – 11am.
