Chef/Owner Burch & Purchese

“This is my second year as a Biggest Morning Tea ambassador and I'm delighted to help raise awareness for Cancer Council's important work. Many of my close friends and family have been touched directly, or indirectly, by cancer, and I know the devastation that it can cause. We had a great Biggest Morning Tea at the Langham Melbourne last year meeting friends and new faces over a cup of tea and dessert. I was humbled by the support that event received and we're looking forward to building on its success in 2016. Lending my time and resources is the absolute least I can do for this vital cause so I'm delighted to support Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea again this year.”
