Every year since 1994 thousands of Australians have gathered together for a cup of tea to raise important funds for cancer prevention, research and patient support.
This year will be no different with the Cancer Council aiming to raise $11.5 million to help those in need. While Thursday, May 24th is the official date for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea, events can be held at any time during the months of May and June.
Many people will be holding morning teas at their workplaces, schools, community centres or perhaps like me with family and friends to celebrate a birthday.
Since registering to host my morning tea I have had no shortage of support and information from the Cancer Council in organising my event. Local businesses and community members have been very kind in offering donations to help reach my goal amount of $1500. It has been a thoroughly rewarding experience so far and I am looking forward to hosting my first morning tea and celebrating with birthday cake and a cuppa.
