Kettles to boil across the nation for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea

FOR 29 years, Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea has brought together millions of Australians over a cup of tea in support of those affected by cancer.

One Australian is diagnosed with cancer approximately every four minutes, the length of an average tea break. It is estimated that 150,782 Australians were diagnosed with cancer in 2021 – that’s more than 400 per day. 

Leading Cancer charity in Australia, Cancer Council wants to encourage Australians across the country to participate in Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea to contribute to Cancer Council’s work and honour the lives of people who fight cancer every day. 

In 2022, the official day to host a morning tea is Thursday, May 19, but people can host at any time in May or June. 

By hosting or attending Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea (in-person or virtually), participants will help Cancer Council continue its life-saving cancer research, prevention, advocacy and support programs. 

Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is the largest and most successful event of its kind in the country and attracts over 4,200 hosts each year. 

Those who want to host can register at biggestmorningtea. or call 1300 65 65 85 to receive a free morning tea host kit. Due to current circumstances, Cancer Council encourages all to follow the recommended safety guidelines provided by the Australian Government. 

Details regarding Cancer Council fundraising events may change as circumstances change.
