The small community of Koonorigan put on a big event to raise money for the cause and do their part in the fight against cancer.

Local lass Denise with the help of Twiggy and Penny, organised a beautiful spread at the Koonorigan hall on Sunday with hot cuppas, a warm fire and yummy treats for a wonderful morning tea.

The official event was held on May 23 but morning teas are held across the country throughout May and June. There is still time to register an event for this year.

Visit the Biggest Morning Tea website for details on how register to host a fundraiser.
