With one Australian diagnosed with cancer approximately every five minutes (the length of an average coffee or tea break), CIBO took up the call to host a morning tea to raise vital funds for Cancer Council SA.
Custom Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea cupcakes will be available at all South Australian CIBO stores from Monday 22 May to Sunday 28 May with part proceeds from each cupcake sold donated to Cancer Council SA.
Cupcakes are also available to be ordered for morning teas across the city through local stores two days prior to the event.
CIBO Espresso General Manager Merissa Collins says the CIBO team are proud to be a part of such a worthy cause.
“We’re excited to be partnering with a great organisation and hope we can raise a lot of money to support those going through a tough time,” she said.
“I encourage people who stop by for their morning coffee to grab a cupcake and support us in trying to ensure Cancer Council can continue to provide their vital services.”
Cancer Council SA Chief Executive Lincoln Size thanks CIBO for their support.
“On behalf of our organisation and those affected by cancer, I thank Merissa and the CIBO team for helping us raise our cups,” he said.
“This year we are highlighting our support services and thanks to the CIBO team, we can continue our work and fighting back against cancer.”
