Mayor at morning tea in gardens to raise money for cancer
FRASER Coast residents have gathered at the Hervey Bay Botanic Gardens for the World's Biggest Morning Tea to raise money in the battle against cancer.
Participants bought a plate of food to share and enjoy among the gardens peaceful surrounds.
Mayor Gerard O'Connell said the morning tea was an opportunity to fight cancer.
"This is our chance to recognise and raise funds and awareness for cancer," he said.
"To have a cup a tea and to stop for morning tea is an opportunity to raise those necessary funds and awareness."
Fraser Coast Council horticulturist Darryl Coombes said the dull weather could impact the money raised.
"I hope we can at least raise $200 to $300 this year," he said.
"Last year we raised $400 on a really nice sunny day but obviously today the weather is a determining factor."
