Coffee’s on the house as Coolum celebrates Biggest Morning Tea

Locals are being encouraged to get behind Coolum’s Biggest Morning Tea, one of the first community events to be hosted since COVID-19 restrictions came into force.

The event, to be hosted by Ninderry MP Dan Purdie and LJ Hooker Coolum Beach, will not only raise funds for the Cancer Council Queensland, it will also give locals a chance to come together as the community celebrates the further easing of restrictions.

From 10am next Saturday 13 June, the first 50 customers at Compound, Freddy Fudpukkers, The Caf and Beanhead will receive a free, standard coffee, when they present the coupon printed in this week’s edition of The Coolum Advertiser.

“This is our way of saying thanks to locals who have all played their part in observing social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as those local businesses who’ve suffered financially during the restrictions,” Mr Purdie said.

“We want to give people a good excuse to arrange a coffee date with friends and family, and enjoy the freedom of the further easing of restrictions, while at the same time sharing the love with a few of our favourite cafes, and a very worthy charity.”

LJ Hooker Coolum spokesperson Melanie Ottaway, who has been organising Biggest Morning Tea events for the past five years said this year’s event was about locals supporting locals.

“Coolum locals are always keen to get involved in the Biggest Morning Tea in support of the Cancer Council, and this year we’re going a step further, to show our thanks and appreciation of the generosity of locals,” Ms Ottaway said.

Ms Ottaway said participants would be encouraged to make another purchase when they claim their free coffee, and make a small donation to the Biggest Morning Tea. There will also be a silent auction, with details available in each of the outlets.

LJ Hooker will also host an area where people can sit (observing social distancing) outside their premises at 3/19 Birtwill Street, Coolum.

“I know people are keen to get out and start enjoying many of the activities they’ve been unable to participate in, and the Biggest Morning Tea is a perfect excuse, especially when the coffee is on us!” Mr Purdie said.
