"I’m very proud and privileged to be an ambassador for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.  Representing, bringing awareness to and celebrating the incredible work that Cancer Council does and continues to do holds a special place in my heart.  I lost both my Nan and my Aunt to pancreatic cancer; taken too soon and missed too much.  Raising much needed funds to support all future works gives me hope that fewer and fewer families have to experience this same devastating loss.

Food brings people together, it encourages conversation, warmth, community, support, and celebration. Morning team and brunches are some of my favourite meal times. It’s usually a good opportunity to sample bite size delights partnered with laughter and a quality catch up.  What an awesome atmosphere to raise some much needed funds for this wonderful cause. Get together with your friends, family, colleagues, bring a plate and your change, whatever you can muster, no contribution is too small and is accepted with great gratitude."
