Time for Tea

The sound of kettles boiling is set to ring across NSW on Thursday 19 May for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea in support of Cancer Council.

This year, Cancer Council hopes to recruit over 7,970 generous morning tea hosts in NSW and raise over $4 million to help everyone affected by cancer right across the state. All donations fund Cancer Council’s life-saving research, prevention, support programs and information.

Since Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea began in 1994, millions of Australians have come together over a cuppa and a bite to eat in support of those affected by cancer. By hosting or attending a morning tea, you will help Cancer Council continue their life-saving cancer research, prevention, advocacy and support programs for people affected by cancer.

Cancer Council NSW CEO Professor Sarah Hosking said Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea events not only provide a chance to fundraise, but they’re also an opportunity to connect with others.

“There have been significant challenges connecting with people over the past few years. Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea offers a chance for communities to come together and reconnect over a cuppa for a good cause.

“People are often surprised to hear that one Australian is diagnosed with cancer approximately every 4 minutes. That’s what makes this campaign so important, it provides a space to learn about the challenges faced by those affected by cancer and raise vital funds for cancer care and research.

“A donation as little as $10 can provide online support for people affected by cancer to learn more about their cancer risk, or what diagnosis means – from the comfort of their own home.

“Cancer affects people in so many ways and impacts every community in NSW with over 51,3971 people in NSW estimated to be diagnosed with cancer this year. It’s vitally important that those affected can access suitable support services, such as Cancer Council 13 11 20 Information and Support Line, accommodation, counselling and peer support programs.

“Every minute, every hour, every day, Cancer Council is here to help those affected by cancer.”

In 2022, the official day to host a morning tea is Thursday 19 May however participants can register to host at any time throughout May or June.
