Iced tea has new meaning

IT'S not often you can say you're helping to find a cure for cancer just by having a cup of tea.

But that's exactly what you'll be doing if you take part in this year's Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, which was officially launched in Coffs Harbour yesterday.

There were iced buns, iced tea and lots of other tasty treats at a very cool ice-themed launch at the Big Banana Ice Rink.

“Each year we are amazed at the way the Mid North Coast embraces Australia's Biggest Morning Tea,” the Cancer Council's Coffs Harbour Regional Office community relations co-ordinator, Ted Greenwood, said.

“Last year, over 800 residents from the region hosted a morning tea. As part of the launch, we are looking forward to thanking our major supporters for their amazing work and at the same time, encouraging more people to get involved this year.”

The official day for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea is May 28, but morning teas can be held any time during the month of May. To register your own morning tea, visit www.biggestmorningtea.com.au or phone 1300 656 585.
