Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea at Cupitt’s Growers Market10 May 2016 – posted in: Event News, Uncategorized

On the last Saturday of the month Cupitt’s Winery along with the Market Stall Holders will be hosting a fundraiser to help those affected by cancer, you can help by coming along to the market for Morning Trust and participating by purchasing raffle tickets in support of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.

It is estimated that 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Sharing a social cup of tea and some delicious food, while fundraising, is a simple and fun way to help support the work of Cancer Council.

With one Australian diagnosed with cancer every five minutes, funds raised from the event support Cancer Council’s vital research, prevention and support service programs.
This year, Cancer Council is aiming to raise $13.8 million in donations, and even a small contribution can go a
long way:
$5 – helps Cancer Council reach out to a newly diagnosed cancer patient, with support and information
resources to help them navigate their cancer journey.
$25 – fund resources to support GPs and health professionals advising patients on cancer prevention,
screening and diagnosis.
$50 – ensures a cancer nurse is available on our free, confidential telephone service (13 11 20) to offer
support on all aspects of cancer.
$100 – allows Cancer Council to support childcare centres and primary schools taking part in the National
SunSmart Schools Program.
$500 – helps fund the provision of a telephone and web-based support groups facilitated by trained peer
volunteers and health professionals.
$1000 – brings our ground breaking research into new and better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
