Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea is back this May

The sound of kettles boiling is set to ring across the nation on Thursday, 27 May for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea in support of Cancer Council.

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.

In 2021, the official day to host a morning tea is Thursday, 27 May, however participants can register to host at any time throughout May or June.

By hosting or attending a morning tea anywhere in Australia, you will help Cancer Council continue their life-saving cancer research, prevention, advocacy, and support programs for people affected by cancer.

Participants are encouraged to host Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea their way – whether it’s at home with friends or family, a simple morning tea in the office with workmates, virtually

(COVID-19 style) or a gathering in a local community or at school.

Community Relations Coordinator, Newcastle and The Hunter, Gemma Pedri said that Cancer Council is so fortunate to receive support from the community through events like Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.

“We have hosts across the country who have supported us for over 28 years! This generosity enables us to continue our work in cancer research, prevention programs, advocacy and support services,” Gemma said.

“Cancer affects people in so many ways and impacts every community in Australia, with over 138,000 Australians 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.

“Our services help Australians affected by cancer, providing vital support when they need it most and making every stage of their cancer journey easier. Every minute, every hour, every day, Cancer Council is here to help those touched by cancer.”

This year, Cancer Council hopes to recruit over 20,000 generous morning tea hosts and raise over $7 million nationally to help everyone affected by cancer right across Australia.

All donations fund Cancer Council’s life-saving research, prevention, programs, advocacy and support services.
