The event is part of the organisation’s annual Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea campaign, with last year’s participants raising more than $13 million across the country.

Mt Carbine event organiser Karen Pedersen said this year’s event on Saturday 25 May from 9am would be held at the town’s rodeo grounds and encouraged anyone to come along and enjoy the fun and add to the donations.

“The ladies will be busy cooking and we have had wonderful support from individuals, businesses in Mareeba and district,” she said.

“EQ Resources’ Mt Carbine mine is also hosting a morning tea with their employees to support ours for which we are very grateful.

“Your donations provide vital support services to ensure no patient or family face cancer alone, and fund life-saving cancer research, prevention, advocacy and support programs like Cancer Council 13 11 20 Information and Support Service for people facing cancer.”

The event will feature a scrumptious morning tea, lucky door prize, a raffle and cent sale. The cost of admission is $5.
