Yarraman residents ready to raise cups for charity
JUDY Lax has been too excited to sleep in the lead-up to Yarraman's Biggest Morning Tea.
After witnessing two loved ones get diagnosed with the disease, she was determined to help out in the only way she could - raise funds for the Queensland Cancer Council.
After the success of a small tea on her deck last year, Mrs Lax decided to plan a bigger one this year.
"We all had such a good time," she said.
"We didn't raise a lot of money but we thought it was a great start and wanted to do our bit to help the fight against cancer."
People are set to travel as far as Toowoomba, Caloundra and Ipswich for the event on Thursday, May 28 at the Yarraman Caravan Park function room from 10am.
Mrs Lax and three others will be busy baking cupcakes, mini fruit cakes, carrot cake slices and lamingtons, preparing sandwiches and, of course, brewing up pots of tea and coffee.
Entertainment will be provided by the Blackbutt Choir and singer-songwriter John Miners who will perform original music as well as country and old-time songs.
Bingo will be drawn regularly throughout the morning and a major raffle consisting of $300 worth of Nutrimetics beauty products will be up for grabs.
"I think this is really important for Yarraman and surrounding suburbs because cancer is affecting every one of us in some way now," Mrs Lax said.
To book your ticket to the event, phone Judy on 4163 8683 by May 25.
