Organiser Liz Clarke said the childcare centre was inspired to host an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea to raise money and awareness for the Cancer Council.

‘This is a cause close to our hearts as we actively encourage sun protection and are a registered Sun Smart centre,’ she said.

She said hunting through local op shops to find mismatched china, doilies and assorted old-fashioned hats for dress-ups was lots of fun.

‘The high tea props were a big hit, with children commenting that their grandmas had similar things at home,’ she said.

‘Everyone was very excited to role play and use their imagination with the tea sets.’

Families and friends donated $2 to take part in the morning tea.

The centre will accept donations from the public throughout May.
