Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is Cancer Council Australia’s most popular fundraising event and the largest, most successful event of its kind in Australia.
Across Australia, workplaces, schools, communities and homes join the celebrations with funds raised contributing to vital cancer research, prevention and support services.
In conjunction with eight cancer-fighting organisations, money raised allows the Cancer Council to:
• Undertake and fund cancer research
• Prevent and control cancer
• Provide information and support for people affected by cancer
Every cup counts:
$5 Can help us give a newly diagnosed cancer patient important support and information resources to help them through their cancer journey.
$10 Can help offer free exercise programs to help cancer patients build strength and fitness during and after treatment.
$25 Can help transport cancer patients to and from hospital for treatment.
$50 Can help the Cancer Council Helpline 13 11 20 provide free and confidential information and support on all aspects of cancer.
$100 Can help provide free accommodation to cancer patients, their families and carers during treatment.
$500 Can help fund ground-breaking research into new and better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
One in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Look around the room you are in, that is a scary stat. Every 12 minutes, someone in Australia dies from cancer and about 13,140 people will die from the disease this year.
Celebrating its 20 year anniversary this year, Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea plays a vital role in raising money for the non for prophet’s work in research, support & cancer prevention initiatives.
Every year our work participates in Australia’s biggest morning tea and raise much needed funds for cancer research. As you can see from the photos below, our office knows how to feast in style, and everyone was more than generous in bringing food and donating to this very worthy cause.
To make the fundraising more interesting, there is a competition held so people can be more creative. This year the theme was “party” and there was high tea party, kid’s birthday party, white themed party and cocktail party.
Prizes were awarded for:
• Best sweet
• Best Savoury
• Best Beverage
• Most creative
We had a great time feasting and having fun in the name of cancer research. Sharing some amazing photos from today.
