Host a morning tea like a boss, and help kick cancer's butt
The Cancer Council invites you, your peers, your colleagues, your kids, and your family to get together for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea.
Australia's Biggest Morning Tea Launch with Burch and Purchese and Jura Coffee
Melbourne folk, you can host your own morning tea in your home, at your child's school, work place, playgroup, kinder on in a park, if you so wish. The idea is to bring together people in your community, share a cuppa and some yummy treats, at the same time raising a little cash for the Cancer Council, to help those affected by cancer.
How to host a Morning Tea
Register online with the Cancer Council. Once you've registered, you will receive a host pack with tips and promotional materials like posters and a donation box you can use at your event.
Although the official date for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea is 26 May, 2016, you can host your own event anytime throughout May and June.
