Over 150 locals, businesses and schools in the Shoalhaven have hosted a Biggest Morning Tea so far, helping raise over $220,000.
Over $5.1 million has been raised nationally, with 20,000 hosts raising a cuppa to support people affected by cancer.
The Cancer Council NSW Commmunity Relations Coordinator Sari Boschiero extended her thanks to the Shoalhaven community for their extraordinary fundraising efforts.
"On behalf of Cancer Council NSW, I would like to thank the Shoalhaven community for gathering together to share a cuppa. We couldn't do it without you," she said.
"We've seen some fantastic events in the area, including Joanne Novich's at Kangaroo Valley Pub with raffles, auctions and baked goods who alone raised almost $15,000 for Cancer Council NSW.
"Thank you again for all the incredible support so far this year. Your morning teas allow us to continue their life-saving cancer research, prevention, advocacy and support programs, supporting all Australians affected by cancer."
