One of Cancer Council WA’s biggest fundraisers will mark its 27th year this month as Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea prepares to go virtual.

This year, hosts are asked to continue to show their support for those affected by cancer by using online platforms such as Zoom, Skype and WhatsApp.

Wheatbelt regional education officer Melissa Pickering said supporting Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea was more important than ever.

“Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea funds programs and services for those going through cancer, including crisis relief during the COVID-19 pandemic such as financial assistance and counselling,” she said.

“ABMT will also ensure lifesaving cancer research continues, so momentum isn’t lost and breakthroughs can continue to be made.”

Other event options include postponing until later in the year and holding a more traditional morning tea when it is safe to do so, having a “cuppa catch-up” with the people in your own household, or making a donation.
