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. It is is the easiest way to bring people together to raise funds that will make a big difference to those impacted by cancer.
Hosting a tea is a fun and rewarding way to support the event and help save lives, with more than a million people sipping their way through morning teas at work, school, home and in the community.
Sarah Martin from our front of house team has registered as a host for the Australian Cancer Councils Biggest Moring Tea and staff here at the Ballrat Surgicentre will be participating in this event on both the 21st and 23rd of May.
We hope to raise some money for this worthy cause while enjoying some treats and a cuppa together as a team.
Every dollar raised through Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea helps fund Cancer Council’s life-saving research, prevention, support programs, and information. See below for some of the ways your donations make a difference to those impacted by cancer.
