The generosity and wonderful spirit of the Kempsey community shone through at Kempsey Central IGA recently as the store held an Australia's biggest morning tea function.
May 28 saw delicious treats on offer for the community and with many residents left wanting more, IGA held a second morning tea on June 5.
Both events saw slices, cupcakes, jelly slices, biscuits and brownies all on offer with $1208 raised for the cancer council.
"This is the first time we've done it, we usually have tins on our registers but this time we thought we'd hold the biggest morning tea," Jodie Simpson, of Kempsey Central IGA, told the Argus.
"It went well the first week so we thought why not give it another crack.
"We're very community based and love assisting charities anyway we can because we know the community comes together [to give their support].
"We've previously held events like jeans for jeans day and daffodil day."
The biggest morning tea is designed to raise money for the cancer council to try and change the fact 1 in 2 Australians are diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85.
So far the cancer council has raised $6,239,209.
