On behalf of Cancer Council NSW, I would like to thank the entire community of Canowindra for gathering together, sharing a cuppa and tasty treats, and giving support to those affected by cancer by participating in Cancer Council’s Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea this year.
Over 343, businesses and schools in the Central West region hosted a Biggest Morning Tea during May and June, helping raise over $451,202 across the Western NSW region. Funds raised from Biggest Morning Teas in the home, in the office, in the local community and at school this year will allow Cancer Council NSW to continue to fund vital cancer research, prevention programs, advocacy, and information and support services. This will support the 45,000 people across NSW who will be diagnosed with cancer this year alone.
The work of Cancer Council includes cancer prevention. Healthy eating is an important step in reducing your cancer risk. While there is no one food that can protect against cancer, there are steps you can take to lower your overall risk including a healthy eating pattern, being physically active every day and maintaining a healthy body weight.
With cancer prevention in mind, we challenge you to consider how you can make your recipes brim with healthy ingredients. Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea is now in its 23rd year, so I say thank you once again to the Canowindra community for continuing to make every morning tea matter and for their ongoing support of Cancer Council NSW.
