Welcome all to enjoy Biggest Morning Tea

A WARM, gooey and sweet snack or a hearty savoury feed – visitors to Lakemba’s ‘Good Morning Bangladesh’ Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser will have plenty of choice thanks to the dozens of food stalls in attendance.

One of the organisers, Ruby Haq, who along with husband Tanveer, has been fundraising for the Biggest Morning Tea since 2001, says the event is a great opportunity for other cultures to come along, try the tasty cuisine, enjoy entertainment and at the same time, support the efforts of the Cancer Council NSW.
Ruby’s dad, Dr Abdul Haq, founded the initiative and after he passed in 2016, Ruby and Tanveer decided to continue his legacy.
Last year ‘Good Morning Bangladesh’ were the highest Biggest Morning Tea fundraisers in the country, raising $54,384, with a total raised of $392,000 since it began.
Ruby said in addition to fundraising, it was also vital to raise awareness about how the Cancer Council could help an individual on their journey.
“As well as providing information and resources, the Cancer Council does a lot of behind-the-scenes work such as a man we knew who was diagnosed but facing homelessness,” she said.
“Cancer Council found accommodation for him and there are loads of examples like that, if you or a loved one’s been diagnosed, with numbers on the rise, and are in need of anything, just get in touch and if there’s a way to help, they will.”
‘Good Morning Bangladesh’ is at the Australian National Sports Club, Parry Park, Lakemba on Sunday, May 12, 9.30am-12.30pm, with onsite parking and all invited to attend.
