Make your cuppa count

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THIS May, thou­sands of Queensland­ers raised a cuppa for a cancer free fu­ture, sup­port­ing our 27th Aus­tralia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea fundrais­ing cam­paign.

I would like to thank the count­less Queens­land res­i­dents, com­mu­nity groups and work­places that made their cuppa count – not by sim­ply host­ing an event, mak­ing a do­na­tion or buy­ing mer­chan­dise – but for truly giv­ing hope to the 29,000 Queensland­ers di­ag­nosed with cancer each year.

One in two Queensland­ers will be di­ag­nosed with cancer in their life­time and all funds raised from Aus­tralia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea sup­port our vi­tal work in cancer re­search, pre­ven­tion and sup­port.

From host­ing vir­tual morn­ing teas with loved ones to busi­nesses de­liv­er­ing de­li­cious morn­ing tea good­ies to lo­cals, the cam­paign has looked a lot dif­fer­ent this year.

Queensland­ers have shown their in­cred­i­ble giv­ing spirit and sup­port for those im­pacted by cancer, es­pe­cially dur­ing the cur­rent global pan­demic.

I would also like to thank the many jour­nal­ists and ed­i­tors across Bris­bane for their stand­out cov­er­age and pro­mo­tion of Aus­tralia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea ac­tiv­i­ties.

This pro­mo­tion is vi­tal for the suc­cess of our cam­paign and I thank you for your fan­tas­tic sup­port.

If you haven’t hosted a morn­ing tea yet it’s not too late. Queensland­ers can host an Aus­tralia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea across June.
