Australia's Biggest Morning Tea

It just so happened that this year, the national date for the Cancer Council's "Biggest Morning Tea" was smack bang in the middle of the GP & PHC Research Conference. And being the nature of the conference, the fact that we had a number of papers being presented on cancer research, we believed that this was the ideal opportunity to support fellow researchers and fund raising. Therefore we incorporated the "Biggest Morning Tea" in the program on Thursday 24th May at morning tea and encourage everyone to participate and give generously to this vital research fund.

This fundraiser event is one of Australia's most popular fundraising events and the largest, most successful event of its kind in Australia. Since 1994 every morning tea held has raised funds that have contributed to vital cancer research and essential support services. The outcome of each of these cups is more survivors and more services for patients and families. Every cup really does count in the fight against cancer. More information about "Australia's Biggest Morning Tea" is available on the Cancer Council's website.
