I would like to sincerely thank members of your community for their generous support of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.

More than 4600 Victorians have already signed up to host Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea event in 2021 to help people affected by cancer. Our amazing Victorian supporters have so far raised more than $1 million, with monies still rolling in.

While the official day to hold Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea event was May 27, people can host anytime until the end of June.

All funds raised from Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea events across our state will go towards Cancer Council’s life-saving cancer research, vital information and support services, and cancer prevention programs.

Some examples of how this money makes a difference to those affected by cancer include:
• Funding some of Victoria’s brightest researchers and their cutting-edge projects.
• Supporting prevention programs such as Quit, SunSmart and screening programs to make sure people have all the information they need to cut their risk of cancer.
• Staffing Cancer Council’s support and information line 13 11 20 with experienced cancer nurses who are there to assist all people affected by cancer.

National fundraising income for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea dropped by more than $9.6 million in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions. By hosting or attending a morning tea, or donating to Cancer Council Victoria, you will help us support the 36,000 Victorians who are diagnosed with cancer each year.

For more information or to register, visit biggestmorningtea.com.au or call 1300 65 65 85. If you are unable to host or attend an event, you can still donate to Cancer Council Victoria at biggestmorningtea.com.au.

Thank you for your support.

Lyrian Fleming-Parsley, Head of Fundraising and Communications, Cancer Council Victoria.
