DEFEATING breast cancer is just one of the reasons Kingscliff TAFE teacher Tammy Papalia is helping to host Australia's Biggest Morning Tea.

On June 5, Ms Papalia and the TAFE's event students will hold a mornign tea with a tropical twist.

The event will take place in a unique pop-up restaurant with the hospitality and cookery students serving some delicious treats between 10am and 11am.

"I'm glad to give back after the shock of being diagnosed with breast cancer last year," Ms Papalia.

"Knowing the Cancer Council support services was available was a great source of comfort as I went through treatment."

The TAFE hopes to raise $1000 from the event, which will be hosed by comedian Brook Boyd and entertainer Chris Carter, who are expected to tell their own inspirational stories of their experience with cancer.

"So come along and enjoy the morning tea and support this worthy cause," Ms Papalia said.

Tickets are $15 per person and places are limited, for bookings contact 02 6674 7242
