Academy Award winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, My Kitchen Rules host Pete Evans and star of Poh’s Kitchen Poh Ling Yeow lead an all-star cast calling on all Aussies to get together with loved ones and have a cuppa for a good cause during Cancer Council’s iconic Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea event this May.

Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea ambassador, Poh Ling Yeow, said hosting a

morning tea event for your family, friends or colleagues is fun and simple, and you can be as

creative, unique and adventurous as you like.

“Putting on a morning tea is easy, you just have to bake a few healthy muffins and brew a pot of tea. This year I’m hosting a morning tea for my crew at Poh’s Kitchen. You can show your co-workers you care by holding a morning tea at work or organise an off-site tea tasting party to encourage them to get away from their desks.

“You can put together a street party for your neighbours, spoil your family and friends to a

sophisticated high tea or why not host a morning tea with an international flavour to showcase tea and healthy treats from around the world?

“Whatever you decide to do, make every cup count. It’s a great excuse to drop everything, turn off your phones and escape the emails to catch up and spend time with loved ones while raising

important awareness and funds in the fight against cancer,” she said.

Cancer Council NSW CEO, Dr Andrew Penman AM, said a small cup of tea can make a big

difference in the lives of thousands of Australians touched by cancer.

“Every 12 minutes someone in Australia will die from cancer. Every cup counts so we’re encouraging Australians of all ages from all communities and backgrounds to put the kettle on to beat cancer.

“Cancer does not discriminate. It’s a disease that stretches to all cultures and communities. Cancer Council is for all people and all cancers. We are absolutely committed to supporting different communities and cultures to defeat cancer through prevention, research, support, advocacy and information services.

The official day is on Thursday, 24th May 2012, but hosts can put on an event any time during May.
