Tea time for charity

Tea time for charity

The Cancer Council is urging organisations to turn on their kettles for the Australia's Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser event on May 22. The council is calling on IT companies to host events during May and raise funds for the foundation, which collected about $9 million for cancer research last year. Computer Sciences Corporation and Dataflex were the two biggest corporate supporters of the fundraiser in 2007.

"We are a proud supporter of The Cancer Council with our staff raising the most money in the ACT. Once again, we'll be switching our kettles on to top last year's total and tackle this disease that affects one in three people," Dataflex managing director, Brian Evans, said.

Office daredevils can also participate in the Extreme Tea challenge to help raise money. Some of the previous challenges have included morning teas underwater, on the sides of buildings and in harsh environments such as Antarctica.

IT organisations that want to host a morning tea should go to or phone 1300 656 585. Hosts will receive a fundraising pack full of ideas and information including posters, invitations, games and competitions.
