Australia's (virtual) Biggest Morning Tea

ABMT 2020 Email Signature

Living with cancer while dealing with the impact of COVID-19 is unimaginable to most but is a reality for many, which is why we want to encourage you more than ever to host a Morning Tea and come together with your networks for this year’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea (ABMT)!

Whether you’ve hosted in the past or this is your first time, we’re asking you to register and host a Morning Tea in 2020, the virtual way! The official day for ABMT is Thursday 28 May, but you’re welcome to host your morning tea, your way, any time in May or June.

This year, while a little different, we can still use this special event to keep us connected and make a very Big difference in the lives of others. So, please register for a morning tea and have a cuppa for cancer, while you connect with your Communi-Tea of friends, family and colleagues during this isolating time.

A special thank you to our Patron, Her Excellency, Mrs Linda Hurley and His Excellency, the Governor General have joined us for Australia's (virtual) Biggest Morning Tea. You can see their video here.
