Brisbane radio journalists and baking aficionados, Monique Dews from 97.3FM and Jo Hayes from 4KQ, will tip the balance in the fight against cancer this May as part of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.
The local radio personalities have joined the likes of Dominique Rizzo, Poh Ling Yeow, Alana Lowes and Matt Moran as Cancer Council ambassadors, committed to making every cup count in the fight against cancer.
The official Cancer Council Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea date is Thursday, May 22, and more than 6,700 morning tea hosts from around Queensland will gather to celebrate and raise more than $2.5 million for cancer research, education programs and patient support services.
4KQ News anchor Jo Hayes said it was an honour to be involved in such a long-running campaign that supports Queenslanders touched by cancer.
“Joining together for an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is an easy, fun and delicious way to help work toward a cancer free future,” she said.
“Simply invite a few friends over or organise a morning tea at your workplace, whip up a few healthy cupcakes and nibbles, and share a good cuppa.
“This is an excuse to get together with your girlfriends and support a good cause!”
Joining Jo as an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea ambassador is 97.3FM News anchor and foodie blogger, Monique Dews.
“I love morning teas – there are so many delicious treats to be had that are both simple to make, and most importantly, very healthy,” she said.
Whether your Biggest Morning Tea is a simple tea with workmates, a 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.
