Bunbury's Biggest Morning Tea (pics)
William Barrett and Sons has been a hive of activity for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea today.
For the past 18 years, the funeral directors have been hosting the Cancer Council fundraiser and have raised more than $120,000 to help find a cure.

This year, the Barrett team hope to raise more than last year’s tally of $25,000 and are inviting everyone to come along and enjoy a cuppa.
Event coordinator Margaret Barrett said preparations for Bunbury’s biggest morning tea started in February.
‘‘We have over 80 volunteers and 90 businesses donate goods and services,’’ Mrs Barrett said.
There will be live entertainment provided by local schools and a skipping demonstration by the Ripper Skippers.
Community members are also asked to bring along extra money to bid in a silent auction which includes a signed West Coast Eagles jumper and three art prizes by artist Sue Kalab.
Mrs Barrett said there would also be a survivors wall where names and photos of those who have survived cancer would be placed, with $2 for every name to be donated by Shane Williams Auto Repairs.
Two names that will be on that wall will be Biggest Morning Tea volunteers Karen Harrison and Paul Coffey.
Ms Harrison is now being monitored after a breast cancer diagnosis and Mr Coffey had malignant melanomas removed from his face.
These two volunteers have been putting in long hours to help make the fundraiser a big success.
The Cancer Council Biggest Morning Tea is being held at 9 Spencer Street from 9am to 2pm.
