The picture perfect Autumn morning couldn't have put on a better show in time for Inverell Women's Shed to host the Biggest Morning Tea.
Full tables and full plates paid tribute to the collaborative team effort undertaken to make the day a success.
Trish McLachlan said she'd "snuck in" from work, and with four generations together it was a special moment for the family, agreed by all.
"It's not very often we get together like this - it's very nice," matriarch Marj Manuel laughed.
Vice president Lorraine Brown had been working hand-in-hand with many other ladies, and with everyone chipping in with their expertise, the morning tea was put together "very smoothly".
Just before the morning's event got underway, they'd already raised $500, which is half of their goal.
"I feel quite safe in saying we've now hit that $1000 from today," Ms Brown said.
"We just have to tally it all up now!"
Absolutely 100 per cent of the proceeds go to the Cancer Council, and while the event's success will go towards curing cancer, there was also an added benefit.
"Many of the ladies here today are not members and haven't been here before," Ms Brown explained.
"So this was a great chance for them to come and see what we do."
