The Sunshine Coast branch of the Cancer Council wants to give vintage tea sets and unused china a new lease of life.
Cancer Council Queensland CEO Chris McMillan said the donated items would assist in the running of quali-tea events in support of the charity.
“Our dedicated Sunshine Coast staff, volunteers and supporters host hundreds of tea-rrific events throughout the year – from support groups to survivors and carers afternoon teas to formal events,” Ms McMillan said.
“By donating your vintage teacups and saucers for our upcoming events, you can help support the one in two Queenslanders who will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.”
Mis-matched china sets, teapots and teaspoons are all welcome and they are sure to prove a treat and brew-tiful talking point for volunteers and support group attendees.
Donations can be dropped off during business hours at Cancer Council’s Sunshine Coast office (outside Big Top Shopping Centre, Duporth Avenue), or to the neighbouring retail store between 10am-1pm on weekends.
The next Cancer Council campaign where the cups and saucers will be used in quanti-tea is Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.
“Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is fast approaching and is the perfect opportunity to gather your friends and loved ones and help raise vital funds for Cancer Council Queensland’s work locally,” Ms McMillan said.
“From hosting or attending a morning tea, to donating, baking, or spreading the word – everyone can play a part in making the 2017 campaign a success.”
The official Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea date is Thursday 25 May, but locals can hold an event and raise funds anytime throughout May or June.
In 2017 more than 5500 Queenslanders are expected to host an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea and raise $2.6 million for Cancer Council Queensland.
