“Supporting Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is an easy, fun and delicious way that we can work together to help beat cancer,” Ms Clift said.

“All funds raised at events like this enable us to drive much-needed funds into cancer research, prevention and local support programs.

“We’re thankful to have the support of Stamford Plaza yet again – and with hosts Kendall Gilding and Jo Hayes, Monique Dews and a surprise visit from foodie Alana Lowes – it’s an event not-to-be missed!”

Each year Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is enjoyed by more than a million people nationally, and in 2016, Cancer Council Queensland hopes to raise $2.8 million for their work in cancer control.
