A PATCH of Beaufort Street was adorned with blue and yellow on Thursday morning for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.

Outside Radi Estates in Inglewood, staff, friends, family and passersby stopped to donate to the Cancer Council fundraiser.

Director Tamara Radi said it was the group’s third year running a Morning Tea event, which also featured a raffle with prizes from the business’s neighbours.

“We’re getting a bit better at it each year,” she said.

“We have lots of people ask through the year now ‘are you doing it again?’”

Her reason for the fundraiser is one close to her heart – her mother is five years into cancer treatment.

“We decided we wanted to do something to give back, because through cancer research she’s now in remission,” Mrs Radi said.

“It’s only through new technology and medical research that has been available in Perth that she’s been able to get it under control.

“But everyone is touched by cancer in some way. It’s a hard slog, and with new research comes hope.”

Mrs Radi said around 100 people attend the yearly events, with a long table full of treats along the street.

“Everyone’s been baking madly all week, including our children,” she said.

“We’re aiming to raise $5,000 today.”
