Ladies are fundraising 'royal-tea'

MEET Ipswich's newly crowned fundraising "royal-tea".

St Joseph's Primary School pastoral worker Robyn Harm and mum Mandy Koch have received awards for their Biggest Morning Tea fundraising efforts, having raised $9000 over three years for the Cancer Council.

Ms Koch said they hosted their first morning tea to support a mother with breast cancer.

"It's a great community event because we have students serve the morning tea and deliver some entertainment and we invite people from local nursing homes to come and enjoy the day."

Ms Koch said the St Joseph's Biggest Morning Tea team was already planning this year's event, which will be held on Thursday, May 31.

"We usually have about 150 people attend, and we're hoping to raise more than $3000 this year," Ms Koch said.

Cancer Council Queensland spokeswoman Hannah Macauslane thanked the women.

"Mandy and Robyn have so generously given their time and effort over many years to help raise funds for Cancer Council Queensland," she said.
