Participants will be busy in the kitchen creating a lavish feast to help celebrate Australia�s Biggest Morning Tea on Thursday, May 28.

SwanCare chief executive Graham Francis said the aged care facility was very enthusiastic about this year�s event.

�As well as raising money for a very worthwhile cause, we believe it�s important to join in with community events; our residents love getting involved,� Mr Francis said.

�The philosophy of giving is definitely alive and well at SwanCare and we�re very proud of that.�

Since it began in 1994, Australia�s Biggest Morning Tea has raised more than $70 million for cancer research, prevention, education and support.

This year, organisers hope to raise more than $10 million to fight cancer.
