ARE you prepared to be a little tea pot, short and stout just like these ladies?

If so, the Cancer Council Queensland would love to hear from you.

Actually, you don't have to pretend you're a tea pot to get involved in Australia's Biggest Morning Tea to raise money for the fight against the disease.

As Rockhampton-based fundraising co-ordinator Casandra Kunst says, all you have to do is "switch the kettle on, make a cuppa and make a difference as we help reduce the impact of cancer on all Australians.

"Whether it's a simple morning tea with workmates, a sophisticated high tea with friends or a school bake sale, you'll be helping the one in two Queenslanders who will be diagnosed with cancer by age 85."

Thursday, May 24, is the official date of the Biggest Morning Tea, but anyone can hold an event any time in May or early June

Visit biggestmorningtea.com.au or call 1300 65 65 85 to register a morning tea or to find out more.
