Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea spread all the way from Shepparton to Mooroopna yesterday.

Two separate morning teas were hosted ahead of today’s official Cancer Council of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea fundraising day.

Shepparton’s Lifestyle Retirement Village and Mooroopna’s Rodney Park Retirement Village each hosted a morning tea for residents to take part in, contributing to the important cause.

A Cancer Council spokesperson said the funds raised through the Biggest Morning Tea helped to continue life-saving cancer research, prevention, advocacy and support programs.

The spokesperson said this year marked the 25th anniversary of the national fundraiser, and Victorians had raised $36.2million since it began.

Lifestyle Shepparton morning tea organiser Jean Jones said the village’s event helped raise $3300.

Mrs Jones said Lifestyle Shepparton would match the amount raised dollar for dollar.
