Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is taking place all over the country right now and is celebrating 25 years. In Mullumbimby Jo Devine is selling cakes, tea and raffle tickets to once again raise money for the Cancer Council outside Mitre 10.
‘I started doing the Biggest Morning Tea after I had breast cancer,’ said Jo.
‘My employees, Mitre 10, were really amazing and supportive of me when I had breast cancer and it is all the Mitre 10 staff who have made all the cakes and cooking,’ she said with a smile.
Last year Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea raised $11.9million and through the Cancer Council helps fund research, support services, prevention programs and advocacy.
Each year Jo raises between $600 to $800 dollars as people come to buy a cake, have a cuppa and a chat. If you are quick, you can still pop down and support her – she’ll be there til about 11.30am.
