PEOPLE across the region took a nice long tea break on Thursday to raise some much need cash for cancer research.
Offices and community groups paused en masse and dined on some sweet treats all in the name of fundraising for the Cancer Council through the World's Biggest Morning Tea.
There was a large gathering in Loomberah where many families came together at the village's hall for a feast and presentation by Sophie O'Neill who does remedial massage with oncology patients.
Cancer Council NSW is 97 per cent community-funded, and largely relies on the generous donations and support of the community to continue their work.
