CUPS of tea and coffee were poured en masse yesterday as the Cancer Council's Biggest Morning Tea was held across the region.

In Moore Park Beach, more than 50 people dressed in pink and wore their favourite hats at an event to raise funds for cancer research.

Event organiser Pat Walker said the event was a big success.

"We auctioned off arrangements of flowers kindly donated by florists around town," she said.

Ms Walker has been organising a Biggest Morning Tea event for nine years and said the support from the region was amazing.

More than 70 people turned up to the Prostate Cancer Support Group's morning tea event at the Bundaberg Showgrounds.

Event organiser and group member Alma McCulloch said the group had a blast.

"It was absolutely fantastic. We had a lovely lunch, sold plenty of raffles tickets and it was all for a good cause," she said.
